Whereas in 1998 the Adopt-a-Platoon Soldier Support Effort (AAP) was founded as a nonprofit 501(c)(3);

Whereas the AAP is managed nationwide by volunteer mothers and fathers;

Whereas the AAP works to ensure that deployed United States Service members in all branches of the military are not forgotten by providing needed mail support;

Whereas the AAP works to ensure that the deployed United States Service members in all branches of the military are provided a better deployment quality of life;

Whereas the AAP works to lift the morale of all deployed United States Service members in all branches of the military;

Whereas the AAP works to assist military families;

Whereas the AAP works to promote patriotism in our schools and communities; and

Whereas the AAP effort is bipartisan and takes no stand on any conflict the United States may be in: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives honors the contributions of the Adopt-a-Platoon Solider Support Effort for supporting deployed United States Service members in all branches of the military.
