(for herself, Mr. Baird, Mr. Case, Mr. Costa, Mr. Bishop of Georgia, and Mrs. Rodgers of Washington) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Armed Services


Recognizing military spouses of the United States of America.

Whereas military spouses serve faithfully alongside members of our Armed Forces, are strong, proud, and faithful to their country, and are valued members of their community;

Whereas military spouses make sacrifices and take on hardships of their own;

Whereas military spouses often place careers on hold to help support a family;

Whereas military spouses are often tasked with parenting alone when a significant other is deployed;

Whereas military spouses take care of children, shopping, and maintaining a household;

Whereas military spouses are subject to frequent relocation as duty calls, pulling them away from friends and family;

Whereas military spouses take it upon themselves to support other military spouses in times of need and otherwise;

Whereas military spouses face the reality that their husband or wife may not come home; and

Whereas military spouses continually hold their head high in times of uncertainty and challenging circumstances: Now, therefore, be it

That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that military spouses are recognized for their sacrifices they make on a daily basis and acknowledged for their strength and perseverance through difficult and challenging times.
