State legislation that would strengthen the instruction of World History in Ohio schools is close to being enacted, but needs your help. Senate Bill 96, sponsored by Senator Frank LaRose (R-Akron) would require one unit of World History in high school as part of the social studies curriculum (it is currently an elective). Senate Bill 96 passed the Senate unanimously and needs approval of the Ohio House of Representatives by the end of session on about December 18, 2014 in order to be voted on by the entire House.

On October 1, 2014, the National Cemetery Administration (NCA) of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published, in the Federal Register, a proposed rule to amend the existing definition of eligible applicants by expanding the types of individuals who may request headstones or markers on behalf of decedents. The amendment addresses concerns that the existing applicant definition is too restrictive and results in identified Veteran grave sites going unmarked.

If your chapter has participated in recent events that you would like publicized, please e-mail me. Send an attached photo and I will try to include it in the next issue of the Ohio Country Bulletin. Thank you.
