      Commemorating June 22, 1994, as the 50th anniversary of the 
                 Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944.

Whereas on June 22, 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed into law the 
        Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, commonly known as the GI Bill of 
        Rights of 1944;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights of 1944 provided education and training benefits 
        to over 7,800,000 veterans;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights of 1944 provided unemployment benefits and job 
        counseling services to assist veterans during the period between 
        discharge from military service and re-employment;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights of 1944 is credited with contributing to the 
        robust recovery of the United States post-World War II economy;
Whereas Acts enacted subsequent to the GI Bill of Rights of 1944 have provided 
        education and training benefits to 12,500,000 veterans, making education 
        and training opportunities for those veterans obtainable and affordable;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights of 1944, and subsequent Acts, established home 
        loan programs for veterans which, since 1944, have guaranteed over 
        14,300,000 loans, totaling over $450,000,000,000, providing home 
        ownership opportunities to millions of veterans and their families;
Whereas the GI Bill of Rights of 1944, and subsequent Acts, have been recognized 
        by educational, business, sociocultural, and political leaders as 
        landmark pieces of legislation which have collectively contributed to 
        the development of the United States middle class; and
Whereas Congress has repeatedly expressed its support for the goals of the GI 
        Bill of Rights of 1944 through enactment of subsequent Acts: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
