Commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the United States Air Force Space 
      Command headquartered at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado.

Whereas, on September 1, 1982, the United States Air Force created the United 
        States Air Force Space Command to defend North America through its space 
        and intercontinental missile operations;
Whereas 2007 marks the 25th year of excellence and service of Air Force Space 
        Command to the United States of America;
Whereas the mission of Air Force Space Command is to deliver trained and ready 
        airmen with unrivaled space capabilities to defend the United States;
Whereas Air Force Space Command organizes, trains, and equips forces to supply 
        combatant commanders with the space and intercontinental ballistic 
        missile capabilities to defend the United States and its national 
        interests;
Whereas Air Force Space Command's Ground-based radar and Defense Support Program 
        satellites monitor ballistic missile launches around the world to guard 
        against a surprise missile attack on North America;
Whereas Air Force Space Command provides a significant portion of United States 
        Strategic Command's war fighting capabilities, including, missile 
        warning, strategic deterrence, and space-based surveillance 
        capabilities;
Whereas Air Force Space Command space surveillance network provides vital 
        information on the location of satellites and space debris for the 
        Nation and the world;
Whereas the current war on terror requires extensive use of space-based 
        communications, global positioning systems, and meteorological data to 
        effectively prosecute military operations;
Whereas Air Force Space Command provides war fighters with ``high ground'' 
        through satellite communications and positioning and timing data for 
        ground and air operations and weapons delivery;
Whereas Air Force Space Command deployed helicopters to the Gulf Coast region 
        during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to deliver meals, water, and 
        medical supplies and to conduct search and rescue operations;
Whereas the work done by the men and women of the Air Force Space Command is 
        vital to our military, making the Nation more combat effective and 
        helping save lives every day; and
Whereas Air Force Space Command advocates space capabilities and systems for all 
        unified commands and military services, and collectively provides space 
        capabilities America needs today and in the future: Now, therefore, be 
        it
    Resolved, That the United States House of Representatives--
            (1) recognizes the contributions made by Air Force Space 
        Command to the security of the United States; and
            (2) commemorates Air Force Space Command's 25 years of 
        excellence and service to the Nation.
