                   IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas there are many thousands of public memorials scattered throughout the 
        United States and abroad that commemorate military conflicts of the 
        United States and the service of individuals in the Armed Forces;
Whereas these memorials have never been comprehensively cataloged;
Whereas many of these memorials suffer from neglect and disrepair, and many have 
        been relocated or stored in facilities where they are unavailable to the 
        public and subject to further neglect and damage;
Whereas there exists a need to collect and centralize information regarding the 
        location, status, and description of these memorials;
Whereas the Federal Government maintains information on memorials only if they 
        are Federally funded; and
Whereas Remembering Veterans Who Earned Their Stripes (a nonprofit corporation 
        established as RVETS, Inc. under the laws of the State of Nevada) has 
        undertaken a self-funded program to catalogue the memorials located in 
        the United States that commemorate military conflicts of the United 
        States and the service of individuals in the Armed Forces, and has 
        already obtained information on more than 7000 memorials in 50 States: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the people of the United States owe a debt of gratitude 
        to veterans for their sacrifices in defending the Nation during 
        times of war and peace;
            (2) public memorials that commemorate military conflicts of 
        the United States and the service of individuals in the Armed 
        Forces should be maintained in good condition, so that future 
        generations may know of the burdens borne by these individuals;
            (3) Federal, State, and local agencies responsible for the 
        construction and maintenance of these memorials should 
        cooperate in cataloging these memorials and providing the 
        resulting information to the Department of the Interior; and
            (4) the Secretary of the Interior, acting through the 
        Director of the National Park Service, should--
                    (A) collect and maintain information on public 
                memorials that commemorate military conflicts of the 
                United States and the service of individuals in the 
                Armed Forces;
                    (B) coordinate efforts at collecting and 
                maintaining this information with similar efforts by 
                other entities, such as Remembering Veterans Who Earned 
                Their Stripes (a nonprofit corporation established as 
                RVETS, Inc. under the laws of the State of Nevada); and
                    (C) make this information available to the public.

            Passed the House of Representatives September 19, 2000.

            Attest:

                                                 JEFF TRANDAHL,

                                                                 Clerk.
