H. CON. RES. 345
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
September 20, 2000
Received and referred to the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources
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
(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.
