                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
 To commend the bravery and honor of the citizens of Remy, France, for 
their actions with respect to Lieutenant Houston Braly and to recognize 
 the efforts of the 364th Fighter Group to raise funds to restore the 
               stained glass windows of a church in Remy.

Whereas on August 2, 1944, a squadron of P-51s from the United States 364th 
        Fighter Group strafed a German munitions train in Remy, France;
Whereas the resulting explosion killed Lieutenant Houston Braly, one of the 
        attacking pilots, and destroyed much of the village of Remy, including 7 
        stained glass windows in the 13th century church;
Whereas, despite threats of reprisals from the occupying German authorities, the 
        citizens of Remy recovered Lieutenant Braly's body from the wreckage, 
        buried his body with dignity and honor in the church's cemetery, and 
        decorated the grave site daily with fresh flowers;
Whereas on Armistice Day, 1995, the village of Remy renamed the crossroads near 
        the site of Lieutenant Braly's death in his honor;
Whereas the surviving members of the 364th Fighter Group desire to express their 
        gratitude to the brave citizens of Remy; and
Whereas, to express their gratitude, the surviving members of the 364th Fighter 
        Group have organized a nonprofit corporation to raise funds, through its 
        project ``Windows for Remy'', to restore the church's stained glass 
        windows: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That Congress--
            (1) commends the bravery and honor of the citizens of Remy, 
        France, for their actions with respect to the American fighter 
        pilot Lieutenant Houston Braly during and after August 1944; 
        and
            (2) recognizes the efforts of the surviving members of the 
        United States 364th Fighter Group to raise funds to restore the 
        stained glass windows of Remy's 13th century church.
