                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
  Designating April 9, 1993, and April 9, 1994, as ``National Former 
                   Prisoner of War Recognition Day''.

Whereas the United States has fought in many wars;
Whereas thousands of members of the armed forces of the United States who served 
        in such wars were captured by the enemy and held as prisoners of war;
Whereas many such prisoners of war were subjected to brutal and inhumane 
        treatment by their captors in violation of international codes and 
        customs for the treatment of prisoners of war and died, or were 
        disabled, as a result of such treatment; and
Whereas the great sacrifices of such prisoners of war and their families deserve 
        national recognition: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That April 9, 1993, and April 
9, 1994, is designated as ``National Former Prisoner of War Recognition 
Day'' in honor of the members of the armed forces of the United States 
who have been held as prisoners of war, and the President is authorized 
and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the 
United States to commemorate such day with appropriate ceremonies and 
activities.
