Whereas 1,015 United States service members and more than 100 British
and Allied officers and crewmen perished as a result of the attack;
Whereas hundreds died immediately when the bomb struck and hundreds
more died when darkness and rough seas limited rescue efforts;

of the HMT ROHNA, for the heroic sacrifice they made for freedom
and the defense of the Nation;
(2) the United States service members who survived the sinking
of the HMT ROHNA, for their bravery in the face of disaster and
their subsequent service during the war on behalf of the Nation;
(3) the families of all of these service members; and
(4) the United States, British, and French rescuers, especially
the crew of the USS PIONEER, who endangered their lives to save the
passengers and crew of the HMT ROHNA.
Clerk of the House of Representatives.
