[i]I'm deeply grateful that the House has accepted my amendment to establish a memorial at Arlington Cemetery to honor astronauts Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom, Edward H. White II, and Roger B. Chaffee, who perished 50 years ago while preparing for the Apollo 1 mission.
It is both right and long overdue that we honor the memory of these heroes by means of a memorial, as was done for the crews of the Challenger and Columbia Shuttle missions. Each of these individuals made the ultimate sacrifice in the pursuit of a noble and inspiring goal — the peaceful exploration of outer space.
I am grateful to all my colleagues on both sides of the aisle for supporting this amendment, and I hope that the Senate will join us in making the Apollo 1 memorial a reality.[/i]
