      Recognizing the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II.

Whereas the brave men and women of the United States made tremendous sacrifices 
        during World War II to save the world from tyranny and aggression;
Whereas over 16,000,000 people served in the United States Armed Forces during 
        World War II;
Whereas over 400,000 men and women of the United States Armed Forces gave their 
        lives in defense of freedom around the world during World War II;
Whereas World War II fundamentally reshaped the international geopolitical 
        landscape, as well as the economic, political, and cultural institutions 
        of the United States;
Whereas World War II involved a clear choice between democracy and tyranny and 
        involved the United States as a whole in a worldwide battle against the 
        forces of fascism and oppression;
Whereas celebrations around the United States and the world reflected the 
        overwhelming sense of relief and exhilaration felt by those citizens of 
        Allied nations at the end of World War II; and
Whereas on the morning of September 2, 1945, Japan formally surrendered on board 
        the battleship USS Missouri: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That Congress--
            (1) recognizes the 65th anniversary of the surrender of the 
        Government of Japan and the end of World War II; and
            (2) honors the thousands of men and women of the United 
        States Armed Forces who paid the ultimate sacrifice and gave 
        their lives in defense of freedom and liberty.
                                 <all>
