- "Pappy" Boyington Controversy: The debate surrounding [R-12-18], a resolution proposed by Senator Andrew P. D. G. Everett to call for a memorial to Col. Gregory "Pappy" Boyington, a University of Washington alumnus and [Medal of Honor] recipient, resulted in considerable controversy and attention from media outlets and blogs across the country. The debate within the Senate also resulted in [R-12-26] which was an updated version of R-12-18, as well as [R-12-24], [R-12-25]and [R-12-28]. The controversy ultimately resulted in the creation of the Medal of Honor Memorial Taskforce after passage of R-12,26.
