    Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War, and Bosnia; and

Whereas the VFW has, for the past 100 years, provided voluntary and 
    unselfish service to the Armed Forces and to veterans, communities, 
    States, and the Nation and has worked toward the betterment of 
    veterans in general and society as a whole: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That the Congress--
            (1) recognizes the historic significance of the 100th

        recognizing the anniversary of the VFW and the contributions
