Madison— The Military Order of the Purple Heart-Department of Wisconsin, expresses
its gratitude to the Wisconsin State Senate for its passage of SB 473 “Green Alert” bill by
a voice vote yesterday.
This legislation will be the first of its kind in the nation and can set the benchmark for
other states’ efforts to combat the unfortunate situation of an at-risk veteran who goes
missing. We hope that the Wisconsin State Assembly will also act upon this legislation
before the upcoming end of its formal legislative session.
