U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming paid tribute Tuesday on the Senate floor to Rylee McCollum, a Marine from Wyoming who was killed in a terrorist attack in Afghanistan on August 26. Senator Lummis joined fellow senators in honoring the 13 U.S. service members killed in the ISIS attack outside of Kabul’s airport. Senator Lummis said McCollum was a Wyoming guy through and through.
Senator Lummis closed her remarks on the Senate floor by saying the people of Wyoming are heartbroken, but infinitely proud of McCollum’s bravery and sacrifice.
