Pielli's Battle of the Bulge resolution adopted by House

H.R. 275 recognizes anniversary of largest U.S. land battle in WWII

HARRISBURG, Dec. 13 – State Rep. Chris Pielli, D-Chester is proud to announce that his House Resolution 275 has been adopted by the state House.

The resolution recognizes the efforts and sacrifices of thousands of U.S. troops during the Battle of the Bulge. The resolution also requests that the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs create, publish, and present materials about the Battle of the Bulge and the special heroism displayed by Pennsylvania soldiers, airmen, and military units in time for the 80th anniversary in 2024.

“Without the courage of and sacrifice of Pennsylvania troops, in particular our own 28th Infantry Division, the history of this battle and the war might have been told very differently,” Pielli, an Army veteran said. “I’m proud to have passed this legislation with the help of my colleagues in the state House. Because of their support, we can highlight the heroism of Pennsylvania’s 28th Division units toward this crucial effort and will enable the DMVA to start preparing for commemorating the 80th anniversary of Pennsylvania's tremendous contribution to this historic battle.”
