On October 16, 2017 the US Senate passed Resolution S.99 honoring after 73 years the sacrifice and service of The Wereth Eleven. The Resolution now moves onto the House where full passage is expected. Needless to say this has been quite a long time in coming. I am very proud of our entire Wereth team and the small part we played in helping to shed light on this terrible war crime.

The book I coauthored, The Lost Eleven, was optioned in August for a major motion picture. This will bring this story to an even wider audience and remind Americans of the sacrifices made in the name of freedom by African Americans during WWII.


This is the text from the Congressional Record, Oct. 16, 2017:
From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov]


    RECOGNIZING THE 11 AFRICAN-AMERICAN SOLDIERS OF THE 333RD FIELD 
 ARTILLERY BATTALION WHO WERE MASSACRED IN WERETH, BELGIUM, DURING THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE

  Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the Senate Armed Services Committee be discharged from further consideration of S. Res. 99 and the Senate proceed to its immediate consideration.

  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
  The clerk will report the resolution by title.
  The senior assistant legislative clerk read as follows:
