Alicia Koehl Respect for National Cemeteries Act Passes House

Share this post

A bill that would give the US Department of Veterans Affairs and the US Department of the Army the authority to disinter veterans buried in national cemeteries who committed a federal or state capital crime passed the US House of Representatives today and now heads to the President's desk for his signature. Indiana US Senators Dan Coats and Joe Donnelly, along with Indiana Congresswoman Susan Brooks, applauded the passage of the Alica Dawn Koehl Respect for National Cemeteries Act, which passed the Senate in November. Under the legislation, the VA would have the authority it needs to exhume the remains of Michael Anderson, a veteran buried at Fort Custer National Cemetery in Michigan. Anderson shot and killed Indianapolis resident Alicia Dawn Koehl last year before committing suicide.
