                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas, during the period of the Cold War, from the end of World War II until 
        the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the United States and the 
        Soviet Union engaged in a global military rivalry;
Whereas this rivalry, potentially the most dangerous military confrontation in 
        the history of mankind, has come to a close without a direct superpower 
        military conflict;
Whereas military and civilian personnel of the Department of Defense, personnel 
        in the intelligence community, members of the foreign service, and other 
        officers and employees of the United States faithfully performed their 
        duties during the Cold War;
Whereas many such personnel performed their duties while isolated from family 
        and friends and served overseas under frequently arduous conditions in 
        order to protect the United States and achieve a lasting peace; and
Whereas the discipline and dedication of those personnel were fundamental to the 
        prevention of a superpower military conflict: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate 
concurring),That Congress hereby commends, and expresses it gratitude 
and appreciation for, the service and sacrifices of the members of the 
Armed Forces and civilian personnel of the Government who contributed 
to the historic victory in the Cold War.

            Passed the House of Representatives September 26, 1996.

            Attest:

                                                                 Clerk.
