                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation, a nonprofit organization 
        incorporated in the State of Georgia in 1997, is an all volunteer 
        organization composed of veterans, their families, and civilian 
        supporters acting in concert to connect the American soldier to the 
        American public through the use of the story of Army Aviation;
Whereas the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation is not a part of the United States 
        Army and receives no Federal funding;
Whereas funds for the activities of the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation come 
        entirely from donations made by private individuals and corporations;
Whereas Army Aviation Heritage Foundation volunteers devote a significant amount 
        of their personal time and resources to present the story of our 
        Nation's Armed Forces and the legacy of its veterans to the American 
        people through extensive and elaborate living history programs presented 
        at major public venues, such as air show events, and at numerous other 
        smaller community outreach initiatives;
Whereas these living history programs are designed and presented to honor the 
        Armed Forces and its veterans while inspiring the public that ultimately 
        supports the Armed Forces and giving the public a glimpse of military 
        life, service, and devotion;
Whereas the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation has devoted over 150,000 volunteer 
        hours and over $5,300,000 in donated funds, aircraft, and equipment in 
        organizing, developing, and conducting 35 public presentations that have 
        helped to foster patriotism and present our Nation's military stories to 
        an audience of more than 5,500,000 people; and
Whereas the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation is acting to provide America's 
        veterans a voice with which to tell their story and the tools with which 
        to share with the American public their legacy of service and devotion: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress recognizes, applauds, and supports the efforts of the 
Army Aviation Heritage Foundation, a nonprofit organization 
incorporated in the State of Georgia, to pursue the following four 
primary purposes:
            (1) To educate the American public regarding the military 
        heritage of the United States through the story of United 
        States Army Aviation's soldiers and machines.
            (2) To connect the American serviceman and servicewoman to 
        the American public as an active and admired member of the 
        American family.
            (3) To inspire patriotism and motivate Americans everywhere 
        toward service to their community and country by involving them 
        in our Nation's larger military legacy.
            (4) To preserve authentic examples of Army aviation 
        aircraft and utilize them in educational living history 
        demonstrations and presentations so that the symbols of 
        America's military legacy may always remain in our skies for 
        future generations.

            Passed the House of Representatives October 7, 2002.

            Attest:

                                                                 Clerk.
