"This will be a truly emotional moment to have these courageous women, all in their 80's, in the Oval Office witnessing the President sign legislation that officially awards them the Congressional Gold Medal, Congress' highest honor. Though they never sought this attention and focus, if anyone has ever earned the Congressional Gold Medal, it is this group of women who served their nation in a time of war expecting nothing in return. What heroines they all turned out to be and what a great way to say thank you," said the Congresswoman in a statement.
