S. RES. 333


Designating each of Saturday, November 7, 2009, and Saturday, November 6, 2010, as “National Wounded Warrior Day”.


IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

November 4, 2009

Mr. Isakson submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


RESOLUTION

Designating each of Saturday, November 7, 2009, and Saturday, November 6, 2010, as “National Wounded Warrior Day”.

    Whereas recognizing “National Wounded Warrior Day” would embrace an already existing “mindset of remembrance” for men and women alike that have served our Nation;

    Whereas the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have seen many wounded warriors whose injuries grow more serious as the enemy increases the use of improvised explosive devices;

    Whereas those disabled veterans who have served in previous conflicts without any recognition and those disabled veterans who are currently recovering remind us that we, as people and as a Nation, need to thank and care for our disabled veterans; and

    Whereas the number of casualties after 8 years of the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan is over 4,000 and recognizing “National Wounded Warrior Day” would ensure that the sacrifice of wounded warriors would not be forgotten: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate—

(1) designates each of Saturday, November 7, 2009, and Saturday, November 6, 2010, as “National Wounded Warrior Day”; and

(2) encourages the United States to honor our wounded warriors who have sacrificed their safety in order to preserve our freedom.
