                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
 To recognize the Peace Corps on the occasion of its 35th anniversary 
      and the Americans who have served as Peace Corps volunteers.

Whereas the Peace Corps has become a powerful symbol of America's commitment to 
        expand hope, create opportunity, and encourage development at the grass 
        roots level in the developing world;
Whereas more than 140,000 Americans have served as Peace Corps volunteers in 
        more than 125 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Central Asia, 
        Eastern and Central Europe, and the Western Hemisphere since 1961, and 
        have strengthened the ties of friendship and understanding between the 
        people of the United States and those of other countries;
Whereas Peace Corps volunteers have made significant and lasting contributions 
        around the world in agriculture, business development, education, the 
        environment, health, and youth development, and have improved the lives 
        of individuals and communities around the world;
Whereas Peace Corps volunteers, enriched by their experiences overseas, have 
        brought to their communities throughout the United States a deeper 
        understanding of other cultures and traditions;
Whereas Peace Corps volunteers embody and represent many of America's most 
        enduring values, such as service, commitment to the poor, and friendship 
        among nations;
Whereas the Peace Corps continues to receive broad, bipartisan support in 
        Congress and from the American people;
    Whereas members of the House and Senate were greatly saddened by 
            the recent death of Loret Miller Ruppe, the longest serving 
            director of the Peace Corps;
    Whereas Loret Ruppe's inspirational vision, dedication and 
            leadership revitalized the Peace Corps as she began or 
            revived programs in Sri Lanka, Haiti, Burundi, Guinea-
            Bissau, Chad, Equatorial Guinea and the Cape Verde Islands; 
            energized a new generation of Americans to accept the 
            challenge of serving in the Corps; refocused the Corps on 
            its mission of development to achieve world peace and did a 
            great service to America and to the millions of the world's 
            citizens touched by her efforts; and
Whereas March 1, 1996 will mark the 35th anniversary of the founding of the 
        Peace Corps: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That the achievements and 
contributions of the Peace Corps over the past 35 years be celebrated; 
that the dedication and sacrifice of Peace Corps volunteers and of the 
organization's longest serving director, Loret Ruppe be recognized and 
<DELETED>their</DELETED> the volunteers' continued contributions be 
acknowledged not only for their service in other countries but in their 
own communities; and that the President is requested to honor Peace 
Corps volunteers and the memory of their great leader Loret Ruppe and 
reaffirm our Nation's commitment to international peace and 
understanding.
            Amend the title so as to read: ``A Joint Resolution to 
        recognize the Peace Corps on the occasion of its 35th 
        anniversary and the Americans who have served as Peace Corps 
        volunteers and to honor the memory of former Peace Corps 
        director Loret Ruppe.''

            Passed the House of Representatives March 26, 1996.

            Attest:

                                                ROBIN H. CARLE,

                                                                 Clerk.
