        H.Con.Res.408
                                      Agreed to October 27, 2000        

                       One Hundred Sixth Congress

                                 of the

                        United States of America


                          AT THE SECOND SESSION

           Begun and held at the City of Washington on Monday,
             the twenty-fourth day of January, two thousand


                          Concurrent Resolution

Whereas on November 26, 1943, a German bomber off the coast of North 
  Africa sunk the British transport HMT ROHNA with a radio-controlled, 
  rocket-boosted bomb;

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;

Whereas many families still do not know the circumstances of the deaths 
  of loved ones who died as a result of the attack;

Whereas more than 900 United States service members survived the attack 
  under extremely adverse circumstances;

Whereas United States, British, and French rescuers worked valiantly to 
  save the passengers and crew who made it off the HMT ROHNA into the 
  sea;

Whereas one United States ship, the USS PIONEER, picked up many of 
  those who were saved;

Whereas because of inadequate record keeping, some survivors of the 
  attack struggled for years to verify the details of the sinking of 
  the HMT ROHNA;

Whereas the men who died as a result of the attack on the HMT ROHNA 
  have been largely forgotten by the Nation; and

Whereas the Congress and the people of the United States have never 
  recognized the bravery and sacrifice of the United States service 
  members who died as a result of the sinking of the HMT ROHNA or the 
  United States service members who survived the sinking and continued 
  to serve the Nation valiantly abroad during the war: Now, therefore, 
  be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress expresses appreciation for--
        (1) the United States service members who died in the sinking 
    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.
  Attest:

                                 Clerk of the House of Representatives.

  Attest:

                                               Secretary of the Senate.
