H. J. RES. 46
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
November 3, 1999
Conferring status as an honorary veteran of the United States Armed
Forces on Zachary Fisher.
Whereas the United States has only once before conferred on an individual status
as an honorary veteran of the United States Armed Forces, when in Public
Law 105-67 Congress conferred that status on Leslie Townes (Bob) Hope;
Whereas status as an honorary veteran of the United States Armed Forces is and
should remain an extraordinary honor not lightly conferred nor
Whereas the lifetime of accomplishments and generosity of Zachary Fisher on
behalf of United States military servicemembers, veterans, and their
families through a wide range of philanthropic activities fully
justifies the conferring of such status;
Whereas Zachary Fisher is himself not a veteran, having attempted to enlist in
the Armed Forces to serve his country during World War II, but being
informed that he was ineligible due to a preexisting medical condition;
Whereas Zachary Fisher and his wife Elizabeth have as private citizens enhanced
the lives of thousands of servicemembers, veterans, and their families
through a wide range of philanthropic activities;
Whereas Zachary Fisher has been honored by each of the branches of the Armed
Forces, by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, and by the
major veterans service organizations for projects such as the
preservation of the USS INTREPID as a sea-air-space museum in New York
harbor, the establishment of the Fisher House program for relatives of
critically ill members of the Armed Forces and their families, and the
furnishing of scholarships and other financial support to families who
have lost a loved one in service to their country; and
Whereas Zachary Fisher has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in
recognition of his extraordinary patriotism and philanthropy: Now,
therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress--
(1) extends its gratitude, on behalf of the American
people, to Zachary Fisher for his lifetime of accomplishments
and philanthropy on behalf of United States military
(2) confers upon Zachary Fisher the status of an honorary
veteran of the United States Armed Forces.
Passed the House of Representatives November 2, 1999.
