Recognizing Armed Forces Day.
Whereas Armed Forces Day was created in 1949 as a result of the consolidation of the military services in the Department of Defense;
Whereas the purpose of Armed Forces Day is to honor those serving in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard;
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.
