Two Wisconsin legislators co-introduced a bipartisan resolution to honor Hmong freedom fighters, who heroically supported and defended the United States Armed Forces in Southeast Asia.

Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, and Representative Glenn Grothman partnered for this new resolution to thank the Hmong community.

"I cannot, one more time, emphasize the degree to which the Hmong population played in fighting the great wars against communism. It is something we should all be grateful for and it's so wonderful to have so many Hmong here in the United States," said Representative Glenn Grothman.

Both districts that the legislators represent have significant Hmong populations. They both said they're proud to be the two leading this resolution.
