Think -- will be died in the line of duty serving this country but these Navy SEALs have not been honored for their service why not is the question.
Perhaps because Glenda authority and Tyrone woods were killed during the terror attacks in -- Ghazi and one year later.
Many of the questions surrounding that attack are still being brushed under the rug we're told Debbie Lee's son.
Mark -- -- with the first navy seal to make the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq.
She's behind -- push to make sure other brave seals do not get -- thank you so much for being with us good to see this morning.
You bet thanks for having me it's nice good to be back on FOX & Friends thank you so much tell us about the spill what you're trying to push.
Yes the bill is HR 1186.
It was introduced in March I approach Duncan hunter's office and asked for help on this and as a marine himself.
He stepped up to the plate -- of course I would be honored to introduce the legislation.
He's from California which is where a tie and Glenn both lived -- served as well as my son did.
And so -- legislation was introduced we have over forty co sponsors it's a nonpartisan bill.
This is just to get the congressional gold medal for -- and -- Goes man win and to the fire for seven hours without regard for their own lives.
And willingly gave their lives defending that embassy.
Trying to save the ambassador John Smith.
And the many many lives that were saved that day.
And we owe it to them this is the least that we can do yes to let them know we remember their sacrifice and let their families know we'll never forget.
It it is very much the least we can do and of course we -- we're rooting for the passage of this bill.
But we can also arrest and punish the people who murdered them is your sense -- the administration is moving at all toward doing that.
You know that's one of the things it has been so frustrating for me.
Since my son's death I dedicated my life to advocating for the troops and this is one of those areas that gets in over a year now.
And those families still don't have answers we as a nation don't have the answers.
And the cover up that is gone on is just repulsive to me that we can't get the truth out there.
Obviously there's -- -- things that we do that we can't reveal to the American public but there -- a lot of those answers there that we need that we should have.
And I'm calling on the administration to get those -- -- -- I understand you have a personal connection to tyrant was their ties family what is that.
As I mentioned my son mark was the first navy seal that was killed and I Iraq on August 2 2006.
And I found out after ties death.
That -- was actually want -- marks -- instructors.
And ties wife told me that often.
I would talk about mark an amazing hero he was and his remembrances of him.
And so it is my honor -- tie and for planned to fight for them to make sure that they do get this recognition.
And this bill is nonpartisan it hasn't doesn't have anything to do with my political.
-- feelings and opinions on what's going on -- big guys yes.
That's why it's nonpartisan.
Every Democrat every Republican should sign on to this than I've been up on Capitol Hill the last two days.
-- -- -- over a hundred congressional offices trying to get the members.
Of the house -- -- to sign on as co sponsors of this bill surely that's something that people can do is call your representative.
Get on this bill.
