H.Con.Res. 43 (ih) Condemning the irregular interruption of the democratic political institutional process in Haiti. [Introduced in House] ...
H. CON. RES. 439
Concurrent resolution honoring the members of the Army Motor Transport
Brigade who during World War II served in the trucking operation known
as the Red Ball Express for their service and contribution to the
Allied advance following the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.
H. CON. RES. 439
Whereas June 6, 2004, the 60th anniversary of the World War II D-Day invasion of
Normandy, France, was observed by Americans with numerous commemorations
of the sacrifices of those who fought to preserve the liberty and
freedom of the people of the United States;
Whereas commemoration of those sacrifices and the recollection of those who
served should include all who served, including those who performed
critical logistics functions;
Whereas after the breakout from the beachheads at Normandy following the D-Day
landings, Allied forces began a rapid advance across France, with the
result that advancing units in many cases began to outrun their supplies
of fuel, food, and ammunition;
Whereas on August 21, 1944, in response to the need for resupply of rapidly
advancing forces, the Army Motor Transportation Service created a
trucking operation called the Red Ball Express which began operations on
August 25, 1944;
Whereas the Red Ball Express was a massive convoy effort to speed supplies to
the Allied armies advancing across France;
Whereas the convoy system stretched from Normandy to Paris and eventually to the
front in the northeastern borderland of France;
Whereas by ensuring that United States and other Allied soldiers were properly
resupplied, the Red Ball Express played a major role in the defeat of
Whereas members of the Red Ball Express persevered through arduous driving
conditions and constant threats of ground and aerial ambushes and
performed their duties with precision and efficiency;
Whereas the Red Ball Express was in operation for 82 days and, by the time Red
Ball Express operations were concluded in November 1944, Red Ball
Express truckers had delivered over 410,000 tons of fuel, ammunition,
food, and other essential supplies for the Allied forces to succeed in
Whereas, during World War II, many commanders believed that African-Americans
were not suitable for combat duties and relegated them to service,
support, and supply missions;
Whereas the majority of Red Ball Express drivers were African-Americans;
Whereas the success of the Allied advance through France was made possible by
the soldiers who drove the supply trucks; and
Whereas the members of the Army Motor Transport Brigade who participated in the
Red Ball Express contributed unselfishly to the war effort despite the
indignities and double standards that they endured: Now, therefore, be
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That Congress honors the members of the Army Motor Transport Brigade
who during World War II served in the trucking operation known as the
Red Ball Express for their service and contribution to the Allied
advance following the D-Day invasion in Normandy, France.
