RES. 180 _______________________________________________________________________ CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Commending the members of the Armed Forces and civilian personnel of the Government who served the United States faithfully during the Cold War. 104th CONGRESS 2d Session H. CON. RES. 180 _______________________________________________________________________ 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.
