                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas the cold war was an enduring struggle between communism and democracy 
        throughout the second half of the 20th century;
Whereas an estimated 24,000,000 members of the United States Armed Forces served 
        during the cold war;
Whereas 400,000,000 people were freed from the bondage of communism during the 
        cold war in the countries then known as the Soviet Union, East Germany, 
        Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Estonia, and 
        Lithuania;
Whereas the victory of the United States in the cold war will signify freedom 
        and security for decades to come;
Whereas the fall of the Berlin Wall, one of the most significant events of the 
        20th century, symbolized the triumph of democracy over communism; and
Whereas November 9, 1999, will mark the 10th anniversary of this historic event: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of the Congress that the Nation should celebrate 
the victory of the United States in the cold war and the 10th 
anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall by--
            (1) promoting education about the cold war and its 
        historical significance;
            (2) supporting efforts to establish a memorial museum to 
        victims of communism that reflects the suffering of millions of 
        victims worldwide and the role of the United States in 
        promoting freedom and democracy that led to the end of the cold 
        war;
            (3) celebrating peace, freedom, and the principles of 
        democratic government;
            (4) honoring and reflecting upon the role of the United 
        States in the international struggle for individual human 
        rights and the evolution of the free enterprise system; and
            (5) recognizing the veterans who served during the cold 
        war.

            Passed the House of Representatives July 19, 1999.

            Attest:

                                                                 Clerk.
