AT THE SECOND SESSION
Begun and held at the City of Washington on Monday,

Whereas on November 26, 1943, a German bomber off the coast of North
Africa sunk the British transport HMT ROHNA with a radio-controlled,
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
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,
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.
Clerk of the House of Representatives.
Secretary of the Senate.
