                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, January 21, 2003.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In my report to the Congress of July 22, 
2002, I provided information on the deployment of combat-
equipped U.S. Armed Forces to Bosnia and Herzegovina and other 
states in the region in order to participate in and support the 
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)-led Stabilization 
Force (SFOR). The SFOR began its mission and assumed authority 
from the NATO-led Implementation Force on December 20, 1996. I 
am providing this supplemental report, prepared by my 
Administration and consistent with the War Powers Resolution 
(Public Law 93-148), to help ensure that the Congress is kept 
fully informed on continued U.S. contributions in support of 
peacekeeping efforts in the former Yugoslavia.
    The U.N. Security Council authorized Member States to 
continue SFOR for a period of 12 months in U.N. Security 
Council Resolution 1423 of July 12, 2002. The mission of SFOR 
is to provide a focused military presence in order to deter 
hostilities, stabilize and consolidate the peace in Bosnia and 
Herzegovina, contribute to a secure environment, and provide, 
within its means and capabilities, selective support to key 
areas and key civil implementation organizations.
    The U.S. force contribution to SFOR in Bosnia and 
Herzegovina is approximately 1,800 personnel. United States 
personnel comprise approximately 15 percent of the total SFOR 
force of approximately 12,000 personnel. During the second half 
of 2002, 18 NATO nations and 17 others, including Russia, 
provided military personnel or other support to SFOR. Most U.S. 
forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina are assigned to Multinational 
Brigade, North, headquartered in the city of Tuzla. 
Additionally, U.S. military personnel are deployed to other 
countries in the region in support of SFOR. These deployments 
include approximately 80 U.S. military personnel deployed to 
Hungary and Croatia to provide logistical and other support. 
The U.S. forces continue to support SFOR efforts to apprehend 
persons indicted for war crimes and to conduct counter-
terrorism operations. In the last 6 months, U.S. forces have 
not sustained any combat-related fatalities.
    I have directed the participation of U.S. Armed Forces in 
these operations pursuant to my constitutional authority to 
conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and 
Chief Executive.
    I am providing this report as part of my effort to keep the 
Congress fully informed about developments in Bosnia and 
Herzegovina and other states in the region. I will continue to 
consult closely with the Congress regarding our efforts to 
foster peace and stability in the former Yugoslavia.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
