Each year, on Oct. 11, we celebrate the contributions of Pulaski, who made outstanding contributions to our nation when he fought alongside American colonists against the British in the American Revolutionary War. I was pleased to support passage of H.J.Res. 26 in the House of Representatives to further honor his legacy in the United States,” said Skelton.

The House of Representatives approved the legislation unanimously.
