Congressman Kind Helps Introduce Bill to Create National Green Alert Program to Find and Protect Missing Veterans

WASHINGTON D.C. -  U.S. Rep. Ron Kind of the Third District of Wisconsin helped introduce the Corey Adams Searchlight Act, a bill led by Wisconsin Congresswoman  Gwen Moore of Milwaukee and named in memory of Wisconsin Air Force veteran Corey Adams, who passed away in 2017 after going missing for 18 days. 

The bill will create a Green Alert program at the Department of Justice to support state and local efforts to locate and bring missing veterans home safely.
 
“Every time we send off our troops to protect our freedom, we promise that they will never be left behind. I take that promise very seriously,” said Rep. Ron Kind. “I am proud to help introduce the Corey Adams Searchlight Act, to help protect Wisconsin service members and veterans.”
 
Wisconsin passed similar legislation creating an alert for missing active-duty service members or veterans who are at increased risk in March of 2018.
