Whereas, from the American Revolution's Minutemen to today's modern soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines, American men and women have dedicated themselves to the preservation of liberty and democracy; Whereas 42,000,000 service members served during times of war, and 25,000,000 veterans who served during World War I, World War II, the Korean conflict, the Vietnam war era, and the Persian Gulf war stand as a living testament to the strength of the American spirit; Whereas our Nation owes an immeasurable debt of gratitude to the brave veterans who put themselves in harm's way to defend the United States and its values; Whereas future generations of veterans and their families must know that honorable military service is the highest form of national service; and Whereas honoring our Nation's veterans with the annual issuance of a postage stamp commemorating their service is a fitting tribute to those brave men and women: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that-- (1) a commemorative postage stamp should be issued by the United States Postal Service each year in honor of Veterans Day; and (2) the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee should recommend to the Postmaster General that such a stamp be so issued. <all>
