Taylor Force's family to receive award

 


NEW YORK—The World Values Network is honored to announce that Stuart and Robbi Force along with their daughter Kristen, will receive an award at The Sixth Annual Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala, which will be held on March 8, in memory of their late son, Taylor, who was tragically killed in Tel Aviv two years ago at the hands of Palestinian terrorists.

Force was a West Point graduate and an Army captain who served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Force was on tour in Israel at the time as a private citizen with a group of graduate students from Vanderbilt University. Ten other students were wounded in the attack. Force was the only fatality.

His parents have been responsible for championing, “The Taylor Force Act” which would stop American economic aid to the Palestinian Authority until the PA changes its laws to cease paying stipends to the families of deceased terrorists. On Dec. 5, The Taylor Force Act passed through the House of Representatives with both sides of the house saying the bill’s passage was long over-due.
