A father continues to fight to get his son's name added to the Virginia War Memorial.

A bill to help him get results has moved to the House floor.

A House committee unanimously approved the proposal Tuesday which would include the names of all the state's fallen service members on the Virginia War Memorial.

Right now, only those who died in combat can have their names added.

The bill was introduced on behalf of Rick Schumann whose son Lance Corporal Daryl Schumann died when his helicopter crashed en route to an assignment in Syria.
