S. RES. 373
Recognizing the 225th birthday of the United States Navy.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
October 12 (legislative day, September 22), 2000
Mr. Lugar (for himself, Mr. McCain, Mr. Smith of New Hampshire, Mr.
Warner, Mr. Moynihan, Mr. Robb, Mr. Cochran, Mr. Kerrey, and Mr.
Miller) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the
Committee on Armed Services
Recognizing the 225th birthday of the United States Navy.
Whereas on Friday, October 13, 1775, the Continental Congress, representing the
citizens of 13 American colonies, passed a resolution which stated
``That a swift sailing vessel, to carry ten carriage guns, and a
proportionable number of swivels, with eighty men, be fitted, with all
possible dispatch, for a cruise of three months, and that the commander
be instructed to cruise eastward, for intercepting such transports as
may be laden with warlike stores and other supplies for our enemies, and
for such other purposes as the Congress shall direct.'';
Whereas the founders recognized the essential nature of a Navy to the strength
and longevity of the Nation by providing authority to Congress ``To
provide and maintain a Navy'' in article I of the Constitution;
Whereas a Naval Committee was established to build a fitting Navy for our
fledgling country, acquire and fit out vessels for sea, and draw up
Whereas the Continental Navy began a proud tradition, carried out for 225 years
by our United States Navy, to protect our island Nation and pursue the
causes of freedom we hold so dear;
Whereas, for the past 225 years, the central mission of the Navy has been to
protect the interests of our Nation around the world on the high seas,
to fight and win the wars of our Nation, and to maintain control of the
sea lines of communication enabling this Nation and other free nations
to grow and prosper;
Whereas, whether in peace or at war, United States citizens around the world can
rest assured that the United States Navy is on watch, ever vigilant, and
ready to respond;
Whereas, for the past 225 years, Navy men and women, as both ambassadors and
warriors, have won extraordinary distinction and respect for the Nation
and its Navy on the high seas, among the ocean depths, on distant
shores, and in the skies above;
Whereas the core values of ``Honor, Courage, and Commitment'' are the guides by
which United States sailors live and serve;
Whereas the United States Navy today is the most capable, most respected, and
most effective sea service in the world;
Whereas 75 percent of the land masses in the world are bounded by water and 75
percent of the population of the world lives within 100 miles of the
sea, assuring that our Naval forces will continue to be called upon to
respond to emerging crises, to maintain freedom of the sea, to deter
would-be aggressors, and to provide our allies with a visible
reassurance of the support of the United States of America; and
Whereas, no matter what the cause, location, or magnitude of future conflicts,
the Nation can rely on its Navy to produce well-trained, well-led, and
highly motivated sailors to carry out the missions entrusted to them:
Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Senate--
(1) recognizes the historic significance of the 225th
birthday of the United States Navy;
(2) expresses the appreciation of the people of the United
States to the Navy, and the men and women who have served in
the Navy, for 225 years of dedicated service;
(3) honors the courage, commitment, and sacrifice that
Americans have made throughout the history of the Navy; and
(4) gives special thanks to the extended Navy family of
civilians, family members, and loved ones who have served and
supported the Navy for the past 225 years.
