The article reports on the shortage of space for the two memorials: Honoring the Fallen and a memorial outside of Representative Rahm Emanuel's office honoring American soldiers who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. The House Administration Committee has oversight of the Honoring the Fallen memorial, but since the end of November no new names have been added. The Grand Old Party (GOP) staffers with the committee have offered their help in getting the memorial update.
