Washington, D.C. (Vocus) August 3, 2009
Today, U.S. Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) made the following statement regarding Captain Scott Speicher: "My thoughts and prayers are with the Speicher family. The perseverance of the Navy brings closure to Scott's family and all of us who have worked on his case after a long ordeal. As a fellow Marine, I am proud these Marines followed every lead and fought all the way to the end. This proves a Military Member cannot be listed as Killed in Action (KIA) without actual evidence, I call this the 'Speicher Law' for that reason. Thank you to the Department of Defense (DoD) for not giving up on Scott, a true American hero."
