                       16, 2002 -  [H.R. 2751]>>

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``General Shelton Congressional Gold 
Medal Act''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds the following:
            (1) General Henry H. Shelton, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs 
        of Staff, the principal military adviser to the President, the 
        National Security Council, and the Secretary of Defense, has 
        displayed strong leadership, competence, and professionalism in 
        fulfilling his statutory responsibilities throughout Operation 
        Allied Force.
            (2) General Shelton and his subordinates brilliantly planned 
        and coordinated at the national level the successful air 
        campaign in support of Operation Allied Force.
            (3) General Shelton's leadership, foresight, and 
        determination were directly responsible for ensuring a decisive 
        military victory without a single allied combat casualty in 
        Kosovo in 1999.
            (4) As the principal military adviser to the President of 
        the United States, the National Security Council, and the 
        Secretary of Defense, General Shelton's assessments, judgments, 
        recommendations, and determination were invaluable and 
        instrumental in the unprecedented military victory against the 
        forces of Slobodan Milosevic.
            (5) General Shelton's distinction as a ``soldier's 
        soldier'', as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and 
        throughout his military service, including command of the 
        Special Operations Command, the 18th Airborne Corps at Fort 
        Bragg, North Carolina, helicopter forces in Operation Desert 
        Storm, and special forces Green Berets in Vietnam, serves as an 
        inspiration to the Congress and the people of the United States, 
        a grateful Nation.
