Honoring the service and sacrifice during periods of war by members of 
                   the United States merchant marine.

Whereas throughout the history of the United States, the United States merchant 
        marine has served the Nation during periods of war;
Whereas vessels of the United States merchant marine fleet, such as the S.S. 
        LANE VICTORY, provided critical logistical support to the Armed Forces 
        by carrying equip-


ment, supplies, and personnel necessary to maintain war efforts;

Whereas numerous members of the United States merchant marine have died to 
        secure peace and freedom; and
Whereas at a time when the people of the United States are recognizing the 
        contributions of the Armed Forces and civilian personnel to the national 
        security, it is appropriate to recognize the service of the United 
        States merchant marine: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress--
            (1) honors the service and sacrifice during periods of war 
        by members of the United States merchant marine;
            (2) recognizes the critical role played by vessels of the 
        United States merchant marine fleet, such as the S.S. LANE 
        VICTORY, in transporting equipment, supplies, and personnel 
        necessary to support war efforts; and
            (3) encourages--
                    (A) the American people, through appropriate 
                ceremonies and activities, to recognize and commemorate 
                the service and sacrifices of the United States 
                merchant marine; and
                    (B) all government agencies to take appropriate 
                steps to commemorate the United States merchant marine.

            Passed the House of Representatives September 13, 2000.

            Attest:

                                                 JEFF TRANDAHL,

                                                                 Clerk.
