H. Res. 653

                 In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

                                                         June 14, 2004.
Whereas President George Herbert Walker Bush served as the Forty-First President 
        of the United States and brought to the White House a dedication to 
        traditional American values and a commitment to use American strength as 
        a force for good;
Whereas, during his Presidency, the Communist empire dissolved, the Soviet Union 
        ceased to exist, and the Berlin Wall fell;
Whereas, during his Presidency, American troops overthrew the corrupt regime of 
        General Manuel Noriega;
Whereas President George H.W. Bush rallied the United States people, the United 
        Nations, and Congress and sent over 500,000 American military personnel, 
        who were joined by approximately 200,000 military and other personnel 
        from allied nations, as part of Operation Desert Storm, to defeat Iraqi 
        President Saddam Hussein's million-man army which invaded Kuwait and 
        threatened to move into Saudi Arabia;
Whereas President Bush and his very able Secretary of State secured military and 
        financial support from the United Nations, resulting in many nations 
        participating, for the first time ever, in paying their share of the 
        cost of a major war;
Whereas, during World War II, George H.W. Bush answered the call to duty by 
        enlisting in the armed forces on his 18th birthday, becoming the 
        youngest pilot in the Navy when he received his wings, and flying 58 
        combat missions, including being shot down by Japanese antiaircraft fire 
        and rescued by a United States submarine, for which he was awarded, 
        among other decorations, the Distinguished Flying Cross for bravery in 
Whereas George H.W. Bush continued his commitment to public service by serving 
        two terms as a Representative in the United States Congress from Texas, 
        serving as Ambassador to the United Nations, Chairman of the Republican 
        National Committee, Chief of the United States Liaison Office in the 
        People's Republic of China, and Director of the Central Intelligence 
Whereas George H.W. Bush campaigned for the Republican nomination for President 
        in 1980 and thereafter was chosen by Ronald Reagan to be his running 
        mate, and subsequently served as Vice President of the United States 
        with responsibility for several domestic areas, including Federal 
        deregulation and anti-drug programs; and
Whereas, in 1988, George H.W. Bush won the Republican nomination for President 
        and was elected as the Forty-First President of the United States, 
        probably brought the greatest portfolio to the office of the Presidency 
        since Thomas Jefferson, and served our Nation for four years with 
        distinction and integrity: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives honors former President George 
H.W. Bush on the occasion of his 80th birthday on June 12, 2004, extends its 
congratulations and best wishes to him and to his family, former First Lady 
Barbara Bush, and his children, President George W. Bush, the Honorable Jeb 
Bush, Neil Bush, Marvin Bush, and Dorothy Bush Koch, and pays tribute to his 
lifetime of service on behalf of the Nation.
