BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. CULBERSON. Mr. Chairman, my amendment No. 66 in the bill is very straightforward.

The Medal of Honor is our Nation's highest award, given only to those soldiers who have performed personal acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty. The medal has been made of brass. My amendment today would ensure that from this day forward, the Medal of Honor be made of gold. It's the least we can do for our bravest soldiers who have earned America's highest award, and I would move passage.
