H. Res. 195

                In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

                                                         March 4, 2009.
Whereas the Department of Homeland Security was created as a result of the 
        terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, to consolidate our Nation's 
        efforts to prevent, prepare for, protect against, respond to, and 
        mitigate against threats to the homeland, including acts of terrorism, 
        natural disasters, and other emergencies;
Whereas the Department of Homeland Security marks its sixth year of full-scale 
        operations on March 1, 2009;
Whereas more than 223,000 employees of the Department of Homeland Security work 
        diligently to deter, detect, and prevent acts of terrorism and stand 
        ready to respond to a terrorist attack, natural disaster, or other 
        emergency;
Whereas the employees of the Department of Homeland Security are dedicated 
        individuals who rarely receive the recognition they deserve;
Whereas the employees of the Department of Homeland Security work tirelessly to 
        protect our Nation, frequently working long hours and sacrificing time 
        with their loved ones;
Whereas the employees of the Department of Homeland Security support the 
        Department's mission to secure the borders, protect critical 
        infrastructure, share information, facilitate safe and lawful travel and 
        trade, and work with States and localities to enhance preparedness;
Whereas the employees of the Department of Homeland Security deserve the best in 
        training and resources to accomplish their vital mission;
Whereas the United States has not been attacked since September 11, 2001, and 
        this is due in large part to the dedicated service of the employees of 
        the Department of Homeland Security; and
Whereas the Nation owes a debt of gratitude to the employees of the Department 
        of Homeland Security for their continued and steadfast efforts to secure 
        the homeland: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives recognizes and honors the 
employees of the Department of Homeland Security on its sixth anniversary for 
their continuous efforts to keep the Nation safe.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
