                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
Congratulating the Navy League of the United States on the occasion of 
             the centennial of the organization's founding.

Whereas the Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the 
        encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt to serve and support the 
        United States sea services, namely the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, 
        and Merchant Marine;
Whereas the Navy League has more than 77,000 active members;
Whereas the Navy League is unique among military-oriented associations in that 
        it is a civilian organization dedicated to the education of American 
        citizens and the support of the members of the sea services and their 
        families;
Whereas the Navy League supports active duty members of the sea services through 
        the adoption of naval vessels, installations, and units and the hosting 
        of commissioning ceremonies, award programs, and other recognition 
        programs;
Whereas the Navy League supports America's young people through its youth 
        programs, including sponsorship of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps and the 
        Navy League Scholarship Program, and through its promotion of youth-
        oriented activities in local communities, such as the Reserve Officers' 
        Training Corps and other recognized youth programs;
Whereas the Navy League is widely respected by citizens, community and industry 
        leaders, and public officials; and
Whereas Navy League programs are welcomed in communities throughout the United 
        States, and members of the Navy League are recognized for their 
        integrity and patriotism: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress, on the occasion of the centennial of the founding of 
the Navy League of the United States in 1902, congratulates the Navy 
League and its members for their role as the foremost civilian 
organization dedicated to supporting the United States sea services.

            Passed the House of Representatives June 24, 2002.

            Attest:

                                                 JEFF TRANDAHL,

                                                                 Clerk.
