                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
 Recognizing the 60th anniversary of the Servicemen's Readjustment Act 
                                of 1944.

Whereas on June 22, 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed into law the 
        Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, commonly known as the GI Bill of 
        Rights;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights provided education and training benefits to more 
        than 7,800,000 United States veterans and subsequent Acts have provided 
        those benefits to more than 21,500,000 United States veterans;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights provided unemployment benefits, small business 
        loans, and job counseling services to assist veterans with the 
        transition from military service to civilian employment;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights is credited with contributing to the robust 
        recovery of the United States post-World War II economy, and is largely 
        recognized as one of the most successful domestic programs of the United 
        States;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights, and subsequent Acts, established home loan 
        programs for United States veterans which, since 1944, have guaranteed 
        more than 17,500,000 loans, totaling aggregate loan amounts of more than 
        $800,000,000,000, providing home ownership opportunities to millions of 
        United States veterans and their families; and
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights, and subsequent Acts, have been recognized by 
        political, business, sociocultural, and educational leaders as landmark 
        pieces of legislation which have collectively contributed to the 
        development of the United States middle class: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress--
            (1) supports the recognition of the 60th anniversary of the 
        Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, and
            (2) requests the President to issue a proclamation calling 
        on the people of the United States to observe the 60th 
        anniversary of the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944 with 
        appropriate ceremonies and activities.
                                 <all>
