    Expressing the sense of the Senate regarding the development of 
educational programs on veterans' contributions to the country and the 
   designation of the week that includes Veterans Day as ``National 
  Veterans Awareness Week'' for the presentation of such educational 



                              May 9, 2000

Mr. Biden submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the 
                       Committee on the Judiciary



    Expressing the sense of the Senate regarding the development of 
educational programs on veterans' contributions to the country and the 
   designation of the week that includes Veterans Day as ``National 
  Veterans Awareness Week'' for the presentation of such educational 

Whereas tens of millions of Americans have served in the Armed Forces of the 
        United States during the past century;
Whereas hundreds of thousands of Americans have given their lives while serving 
        in the Armed Forces during the past century;
Whereas the contributions and sacrifices of the men and women who served in the 
        Armed Forces have been vital in maintaining our freedoms and way of 
Whereas the advent of the all-volunteer Armed Forces has resulted in a sharp 
        decline in the number of individuals and families who have had any 
        personal connection with the Armed Forces;
Whereas this reduction in familiarity with the Armed Forces has resulted in a 
        marked decrease in the awareness by young people of the nature and 
        importance of the accomplishments of those who have served in our Armed 
        Forces, despite the current educational efforts of the Department of 
        Veterans Affairs and the veterans service organizations; and
Whereas our system of civilian control of the Armed Forces makes it essential 
        that the country's future leaders understand the history of military 
        action and the contributions and sacrifices of those who conduct such 
        actions: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That it is the sense of the Senate that--
            (1) the Secretary of Education should work with the 
        Secretary of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans Day National 
        Committee, and the veterans service organizations to encourage, 
        prepare, and disseminate educational materials and activities 
        for elementary and secondary school students aimed at 
        increasing awareness of the contributions of veterans to the 
        prosperity and freedoms enjoyed by United States citizens;
            (2) the week that includes Veterans Day be designated as 
        ``National Veterans Awareness Week'' for the purpose of 
        presenting such materials and activities; and
            (3) the President should issue a proclamation calling on 
        the people of the United States to observe such week with 
        appropriate educational activities.
