CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Honoring the service and sacrifice during periods of war by members of the United States merchant marine.

Whereas throughout the history of the United States, the United States merchant marine has served the Nation during periods of war;

Whereas vessels of the United States merchant marine fleet, such as the S.S. LANE VICTORY, provided critical logistical support to the Armed Forces by carrying equip-

ment, supplies, and personnel necessary to maintain war efforts;

Whereas numerous members of the United States merchant marine have died to secure peace and freedom; and

Whereas at a time when the people of the United States are recognizing the contributions of the Armed Forces and civilian personnel to the national security, it is appropriate to recognize the service of the United States merchant marine: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Congress--

      (1) honors the service and sacrifice during periods of war by members of the United States merchant marine;

      (2) recognizes the critical role played by vessels of the United States merchant marine fleet, such as the S.S. LANE VICTORY, in transporting equipment, supplies, and personnel necessary to support war efforts; and

      (3) encourages--

        (A) the American people, through appropriate ceremonies and activities, to recognize and commemorate the service and sacrifices of the United States merchant marine; and

        (B) all government agencies to take appropriate steps to commemorate the United States merchant marine.

Passed the House of Representatives September 13, 2000.
