RESOLUTION

Recognizing the service of the Gold Star Dads of America, a nonprofit organization consisting of the fathers of members of the Armed Forces who make the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the United States.

Whereas the Gold Star Dads of America is a nonprofit organization consisting of the fathers of members of the Armed Forces who make the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the United States;

Whereas the Gold Star Dads of America was created to bring together grieving fathers in a single community to honor and remember their deceased child and to support one another in their loss;

Whereas the Gold Star Dads of America manage Operation Noble Warrior, which is a program that assists members of the Armed Forces who suffer debilitating catastrophic injuries, including severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, incurred while serving on active duty and that also assists such members after their retirement or separation from the Armed Forces and assists their families;

Whereas the Gold Star Dads of America conducts survivor outreach service projects that directly aid Gold Star Families for the purpose of helping the Armed Forces deliver on its commitment to the families of the fallen;

Whereas these outreach and veteran assistance projects provide public awareness and create a positive outlet for the military and civilian communities to unite in a single effort; and

Whereas it is imperative that Americans never forget the ultimate sacrifice made by members of the Armed Forces and the devastating impact that the death of a member of the Armed Forces has on parents, family, and friends: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives recognizes and supports the efforts of the Gold Star Dads of America to assist members of the Armed Forces who suffer catastrophic injuries while serving on active duty and to assist the families of such members.
