                   IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

                             June 14, 2000

                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
       Recognizing the 225th birthday of the United States Army.

Whereas on June 14, 1775, the Second Continental Congress, representing the 
        citizens of 13 American colonies, authorized the establishment of the 
        Continental Army;
Whereas the collective expression of the pursuit of personal freedom that caused 
        the authorization and organization
    of the United States Army led to the adoption of the Declaration of 
        Independence and the codification of the new Nation's basic principles 
        and values in the Constitution;
Whereas for the past 225 years, the Army's central mission has been to fight and 
        win the Nation's wars;
Whereas whatever the mission, the Nation turns to its Army for decisive victory;
Whereas the 172 battle streamers carried on the Army flag are testament to the 
        valor, commitment, and sacrifice of the brave soldiers who have served 
        the Nation in the Army;
Whereas Valley Forge, New Orleans, Mexico City, Gettysburg, Verdun, Bataan, 
        Normandy, Pusan, the Ia Drang Valley, Grenada, Panama, and Kuwait are 
        but a few of the places where soldiers of the United States Army have 
        won extraordinary distinction and respect for the Nation and its Army;
Whereas the motto of ``Duty, Honor, Country'' is the creed by which the American 
        soldier lives and serves;
Whereas the United States Army today is the world's most capable and respected 
        ground force;
Whereas future Army forces are being prepared to conduct quick, decisive, highly 
        sophisticated operations anywhere, anytime; and
Whereas no matter what the cause, location, or magnitude of future conflicts, 
        the Nation can rely on its Army to produce well-trained, well-led, and 
        highly motivated soldiers to carry out the missions entrusted to them: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled,
That Congress, recognizing the historic significance of the 225th 
anniversary of the United States Army--
            (1) expresses the appreciation of the people of the United 
        States to the Army and the soldiers who have served in it for 
        225 years of dedicated service;
            (2) honors the valor, commitment, and sacrifice that 
        American soldiers have displayed throughout the history of the 
        Army; and
            (3) calls upon the President to issue a proclamation--
                    (A) recognizing the 225th birthday of the United 
                States Army and the dedicated service of the soldiers 
                who have served in the Army; and
                    (B) calling upon the people of the United States to 
                observe that anniversary with appropriate ceremonies 
                and activities.

            Passed the House of Representatives June 13, 2000.

            Attest:

                                                 JEFF TRANDAHL,

                                                                 Clerk.
