Whereas Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May, which this year is May 17, 2008;

Whereas United States soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines have given tremendous service to the Nation;

Whereas the House of Representatives is committed to supporting all members of the Armed Forces and their families; and

Whereas all Americans express recognition and gratitude for members of the Armed Forces at home and abroad: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives recognizes Armed Forces Day in appreciation of the members of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard.
