COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Independence) has announced the Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Concurrent Resolution 15 to commemorate Operation Homecoming.


In 1973, amidst the Vietnam War, the Paris Peace Accords were signed, including a provision which permitted the exchange of prisoners of war. Between February 12th and April 4th of that same year, 591 American soldiers were transported by plane from Vietnam, Laos and China to Clark Air Base in the Philippines. Known as Operation Homecoming, the ex-prisoners of war were provided with health care, food and fresh clothing before being transported to the United States.


"Our veterans have protected us for our continued freedoms," said Rep. Anielski. "We need to thank our military for their service and honor them for their personal sacrifices."


House Concurrent Resolution 15 passed with unanimous support and will know move to the Senate for consideration.
