SEC. 352. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON ACCESS TO TRAINING RANGES WITHIN UNITED 
              STATES PACIFIC COMMAND AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) Reliable access to military training ranges is an 
        essential component of military readiness.
            (2) The training opportunities provided by military 
        training ranges are critical to maintaining the technical and 
        operational superiority of the Armed Forces.
            (3) The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review states that the 
        operational readiness of the Armed Forces hinges on unimpeded 
        access to land, air, and sea training and test space.
            (4) The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review states that United 
        States forces in the Asia-Pacific region ``will resume regular 
        bilateral and multilateral training exercises, pursue increased 
        training opportunities to improve capabilities and capacity of 
        partner nations, as well as support humanitarian, disaster 
        relief, counterterrorism, and other operations that contribute 
        to the stability of the region''.
            (5) A number of critical military training ranges, 
        including the Pohakuloa Training Center in Hawaii, are located 
        within the United States Pacific Command area of responsibility 
        providing units from all the military services, as well as 
        allied and partner militaries with realistic joint and combined 
        arms training opportunities.
            (6) Due to the ``tyranny of distance'' in the Asia-Pacific 
        region, there are significant challenges in transporting 
        equipment and personnel to the various military training ranges 
        within the United States Pacific Command area of 
        responsibility.
            (7) The Department of Defense continues a number of efforts 
        aimed at preserving military training ranges, while also 
        minimizing the environmental effects of training activities.
            (8) The Department of Defense has a variety of authorities 
        that may be used to mitigate encroachment on military testing 
        and training missions.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--In light of the findings specified in 
subsection (a), it is the sense of Congress that the Secretary of 
Defense should--
            (1) ensure that members of the Armed Forces continue to 
        have reliable access to military training ranges;
            (2) optimize the use of multilateral, joint training 
        facilities overseas in order to increase readiness and 
        interoperability with allies and partners of the United States;
            (3) utilize a full range of assets, including both air- and 
        sea-based assets, including inactive Joint High Speed Vessels, 
        to improve accessibility to military training areas within the 
        United States Pacific Command area of responsibility;
            (4) provide stable budget authority for long-term 
        investments in range and test center infrastructure to lower 
        the cost of access to the ranges and training centers;
            (5) take appropriate action to identify and leverage 
        existing authorities and programs, as well as work with State 
        and municipalities to leverage their authorities, to mitigate 
        encroachment or other challenges that have the potential to 
        impact future access or operations on military training ranges;
            (6) maximize the use of the United States Pacific Command 
        training ranges, including Pohakuloa Training Center in Hawaii, 
        by the military departments and increase the use of such 
        training ranges for bilateral and multilateral exercises with 
        regional allies and partners; and
            (7) take appropriate action to leverage existing 
        authorities and programs, as well as work with local 
        governments to leverage their authorities, to address any 
        challenges that have the potential to impede future access to 
        or operations on military training ranges.

of temporary shuttle-bus service for air show or open house visitors. 
If costs are incurred and covered in advance of the collection of the 
fees, amounts collected shall be credited to the fund or account that

    ``(b) Limitation on Consideration of Member's Deployment in 
Determination of Child's Best Interest.--If a motion or a petition is

factor in determining the best interest of the child.
    ``(c) No Federal Jurisdiction or Right of Action or Removal.--
Nothing in this section shall create a Federal right of action or 
otherwise give rise to Federal jurisdiction or create a right of 
removal.
    ``(d) Preemption.--In any case where State law applicable to a 
child custody proceeding involving a temporary order as contemplated in 
this section provides a higher standard of protection to the rights of 
the parent who is a deploying servicemember than the rights provided 
under this section with respect to such temporary order, the 
appropriate court shall apply the higher State standard.

SEC. 548. ROLE OF MILITARY SPOUSE EMPLOYMENT PROGRAMS IN ADDRESSING 
              UNEMPLOYMENT AND UNDEREMPLOYMENT OF SPOUSES OF MEMBERS OF 
              THE ARMED FORCES AND CLOSING THE WAGE GAP BETWEEN 
              MILITARY SPOUSES AND THEIR CIVILIAN COUNTERPARTS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) Members of the Armed Forces and their families make 
        enormous sacrifices in defense of the United States.
            (2) Military spouses face a unique lifestyle marked by 
        frequent moves, increased family responsibility during 
        deployments, and limited career opportunities in certain 
        geographic locations.
            (3) These circumstances present significant challenges to 
        military spouses who desire to build a portable career 
        commensurate with their skills, including education and 
        experience.
            (4) According to a recent Department of Defense survey, the 
        unemployment rate for civilians married to a military member is 
        25 percent, but the unemployment rate is 33 percent for spouses 
        of junior enlisted members. The same survey revealed that 85 
        percent of military spouses want or need to work.
            (5) A recent Military Officers Association of American 
        (MOAA)/Institute for Veterans and Military Families' (IVMF) 
        Military Spouse Employment Report revealed that an overwhelming 
        ninety percent of female military spouses are underemployed.
            (6) The Department of Defense has demonstrated its 
        commitment to helping military spouses obtain employment by 
        creating the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), the 
        Military Spouse Career Center, and the Military Spouse Career 
        Advancement Accounts (MyCAA). More than 61,000 military spouses 
        have been hired as part of the Military Spouse Employment 
        Partnership (MSEP) since the MSEP launch in June 2011.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the Secretary of Defense should continue to work to 
        reduce the unemployment and underemployment of spouses of 
        members of the Armed Forces (in this section referred to as 
        ``military spouses'') and support closing the wage gap between 
        military spouses and their civilian counterparts;
            (2) in this process, the Secretary should prioritize 
        efforts that assist military spouses in pursuing portable 
        careers that match their skill set, including education and 
        experience; and
            (3) in evaluating the effectiveness of military spouse 
        employment programs, the Secretary should collect information 
        that provides a comprehensive assessment of the program, 
        including whether program goals are being achieved.
    (c) Data Collection Related to Efforts to Address Underemployment 
of Military Spouses.--
            (1) Data collection required.--In addition to monitoring 
        the number of military spouses who obtain employment through 
        military spouse employment programs, the Secretary of Defense 
        shall collect data to evaluate the effectiveness of military 
        spouse employment programs in addressing the underemployment of 
        military spouses and in closing the wage gap between military 
        spouses and their civilian counterparts. Information collected 
        shall include whether positions obtained by military spouses 
        through military spouse employment programs match their

                from possible hostile aggression from abroad - to train 
                personnel test equipment, develop techniques for 
                establishing, maintaining and utilizing air bases on 
                ice, with applicability comparable to interior 
                Greenland, where conditions are similar to those of the 
                Antarctic.
                    (C) Map and photograph a full two-thirds of the 
                Antarctic Continent during the classified, hazardous 
                duty/volunteer-only operation involving 4700 sailors, 
                23 aircraft and 13 ships including the first submarine 
                the U.S.S. Sennet, and the aircraft carrier the U.S.S. 
                Philippine Sea, brought to the edge of the ice pack to 
                launch (6) Navy ski-equipped, rocket-assisted R4Ds
                    (D) Consolidate and extend United States 
                sovereignty over the largest practicable area of the 
                Antarctic continent.
                    (E) Determine the feasibility of establishing, 
                maintaining and utilizing bases in the Antarctic and 
                investigating possible base sites.
            (3) While on a hazardous duty/all volunteer mission vital 
        to the interests of National Security and while over the 
        eastern Antarctica coastline known as the Phantom Coast, the 
        PBM-5 Martin Mariner ``Flying Boat'' ``George 1'' entered a 
        whiteout over Thurston Island. As the pilot attempted to climb, 
        the aircraft grazed the glacier's ridgeline and exploded within 
        5 seconds instantly killing Ensign Maxwell Lopez, Navigator and 
        Wendell ``Bud'' Hendersin, Aviation Machinists Mate 1st Class 
        while Frederick Williams, Aviation Radioman 1st Class died 
        several hours later. Six other crewmen survived including the 
        Captain of the ``George 1's'' seaplane tender U.S.S. Pine 
        Island.
            (4) The bodies of the dead were protected from the 
        desecration of Antarctic scavenging birds (Skuas) by the 
        surviving crew wrapping the bodies and temporarily burying the 
        men under the starboard wing engine nacelle.
            (5) Rescue requirements of the ``George 1'' survivors 
        forced the abandonment of their crewmates' bodies.
            (6) Conditions prior to the departure of Task Force 68 
        precluded a return to the area to the recover the bodies.
            (7) For nearly 60 years Navy promised the families that 
        they would recover the men: ``If the safety, logistical, and 
        operational prerequisites allow a mission in the future, every 
        effort will be made to bring our sailors home.''.
            (8) The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command twice offered to 
        recover the bodies of this crew for Navy.
            (9) A 2004 NASA ground penetrating radar overflight 
        commissioned by Navy relocated the crash site three miles from 
        its crash position.
            (10) The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command offered to 
        underwrite the cost of an aerial ground penetrating radar (GPR) 
        survey of the crash site area by NASA.
            (11) The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command studied the 
        recovery with the recognized recovery authorities and national 
        scientists and determined that the recovery is only ``medium 
        risk''.
            (12) National Science Foundation and scientists from the 
        University of Texas, Austin, regularly visit the island.
            (13) The crash site is classified as a ``perishable site'', 
        meaning a glacier that will calve into the Bellingshausen Sea.
            (14) The National Science Foundation maintains a presence 
        in area of the Pine Island Glacier.
            (15) The National Science Foundation Director of Polar 
        Operations will assist and provide assets for the recovery upon 
        the request of Congress.
            (16) The United States Coast Guard is presently pursuing 
        the recovery of 3 WWII air crewmen from similar circumstances 
        in Greenland.
            (17) On Memorial Day, May 25, 2009, President Barack Obama 
        declared: ``* * * the support of our veterans is a sacred trust 
        * * * we need to serve them as they have served us * * * that 
        means bringing home all our POWs and MIAs * * *''.
            (18) The policies and laws of the United States of America 
        require that our armed service personnel be repatriated.
            (19) The fullest possible accounting of United States 
        fallen military personnel means repatriating living American 
        POWs and MIAs, accounting for, identifying, and recovering the 
        remains of military personnel who were killed in the line of 
        duty, or providing convincing evidence as to why such a 
        repatriation, accounting, identification, or recovery is not 
        possible.
            (20) It is the responsibility of the Federal Government to 
        return to the United States for proper burial and respect all 
        members of the Armed Forces killed in the line of duty who lie 
        in lost graves.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--In light of the findings under subsection 
(a), Congress--
            (1) reaffirms its support for the recovery and return to 
        the United States, the remains and bodies of all members of the 
        Armed Forces killed in the line of duty, and for the efforts by 
        the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command to recover the remains of 
        members of the Armed Forces from all wars, conflicts and 
        missions;
            (2) recognizes the courage and sacrifice of all members of 
        the Armed Forces who participated in Operation Highjump and all 
        missions vital to the national security of the United States of 
        America;
            (3) acknowledges the dedicated research and efforts by the 
        US Geological Survey, the National Science Foundation, the 
        Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, the Fallen American Veterans 
        Foundation and all persons and organizations to identify, 
        locate, and advocate for, from their temporary Antarctic grave, 
        the recovery of the well-preserved frozen bodies of Ensign 
        Maxwell Lopez, Naval Aviator, Frederick Williams, Aviation 
        Machinist's Mate 1ST Class, Wendell Hendersin, Aviation 
        Radioman 1ST Class of the ``George 1'' explosion and crash; and
            (4) encourages the Department of Defense to review the 
        facts, research and to pursue new efforts to undertake all 
        feasible efforts to recover, identify, and return the well-
        preserved frozen bodies of the ``George 1'' crew from 
        Antarctica's Thurston Island.

SEC. 598. NAME OF THE DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS AND DEPARTMENT OF 
              DEFENSE JOINT OUTPATIENT CLINIC, MARINA, CALIFORNIA.

    (a) Designation.--The Department of Veterans Affairs and Department 
of Defense joint outpatient clinic to be constructed at the 
intersection of the proposed Ninth Street and the proposed First Avenue 
in Marina, California, shall be known and designated as the ``Major 
General William H. Gourley VA-DOD Outpatient Clinic''.
    (b) References.--Any reference in a law, regulation, map, document, 
record, or other paper of the United States to the Department of 
Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense joint outpatient clinic 
referred to in subsection (a) shall be deemed to be a reference to the 
``Major General William H. Gourley VA-DOD Outpatient Clinic''.

SEC. 599. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING PRESERVATION OF SECOND AMENDMENT 
              RIGHTS OF ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY PERSONNEL STATIONED OR 
              RESIDING IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution 
        provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms 
        shall not be infringed.
            (2) Approximately 40,000 servicemen and women across all 
        branches of the Armed Forces either live in or are stationed on 
        active duty within the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. 
        Unless these individuals are granted a waiver as serving in a 
        law enforcement role, they are subject to the District of 
        Columbia's onerous and highly restrictive laws on the 
        possession of firearms.
            (3) Military personnel, despite being extensively trained 
        in the proper and safe use of firearms, are therefore deprived 
        by the laws of the District of Columbia of handguns, rifles, 
        and shotguns that are commonly kept by law-abiding persons 
        throughout the United States for sporting use and for lawful 
        defense of their persons, homes, businesses, and families.
            (4) The District of Columbia has one of the highest per 
        capita murder rates in the Nation, which may be attributed in 
        part to previous local laws prohibiting possession of firearms 
        by law-abiding persons who would have otherwise been able to 
        defend themselves and their loved ones in their own homes and 
        businesses.
            (5) The Gun Control Act of 1968 (as amended by the Firearms 
        Owners' Protection Act) and the Brady Handgun Violence 
        Prevention Act provide comprehensive Federal regulations 
        applicable in the District of Columbia as elsewhere. In 
        addition, existing District of Columbia criminal laws punish 
        possession and illegal use of firearms by violent criminals and 
        felons. Consequently, there is no need for local laws that only 
        affect and disarm law-abiding citizens.
            (6) On June 26, 2008, the Supreme Court of the United 
        States in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller held that 
        the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess 
        a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, and thus ruled 
        that the District of Columbia's handgun ban and requirements 
        that rifles and shotguns in the home be kept unloaded and 
        disassembled or outfitted with a trigger lock to be 
        unconstitutional.
            (7) On July 16, 2008, the District of Columbia enacted the 
        Firearms Control Emergency Amendment Act of 2008 (D.C. Act 17-
        422; 55 DCR 8237), which places onerous restrictions on the 
        ability of law-abiding citizens from possessing firearms, thus 
        violating the spirit by which the Supreme Court of the United 
        States ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller.
            (8) On February 26, 2009, the United States Senate adopted 
        an amendment on a bipartisan vote of 62-36 by Senator John 
        Ensign to S. 160, the District of Columbia House Voting Rights 
        Act of 2009, which would fully restore Second Amendment rights 
        to the citizens of the District of Columbia.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that active 
duty military personnel who are stationed or residing in the District 
of Columbia should be permitted to exercise fully their rights under 
the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and 
therefore should be exempt from the District of Columbia's restrictions 
on the possession of firearms.

SEC. 735. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON USE OF HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY TO 
              TREAT TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY AND POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS 
              DISORDER.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) Traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress 
        disorder are the signature injuries of the wars in Iraq and 
        Afghanistan.
            (2) Post-traumatic stress disorder is prevalent throughout 
        the regular component of the Armed Forces.
            (3) For example, with respect to Camp Lejeune, North 
        Carolina, which has a base population of 41,753 active duty 
        personnel, including 38,020 marines and 3,533 sailors--
                    (A) 6,616 patients with a principal diagnosis of 
                post-traumatic stress disorder had at least one visit 
                for post-traumatic stress disorder between February 
                2013 and April 2014; and
                    (B) the Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, which had a 
                total of approximately 600,000 outpatient visits during 
                2013, recorded 15,043 outpatient visits for which post-
                traumatic stress disorder was the primary reason for 
                the visit between February 2013 and April 2014.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment that 
        can be used to treat active duty members of the Armed Forces 
        for traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder 
        if--
                    (A) such treatment is prescribed by a military 
                medical doctor; and
                    (B) a hyperbaric chamber that is owned by the 
                Department of Defense and cleared for clinical use is 
                locally available; and
            (2) the Secretary of Defense should increase awareness 
        among members of the Armed Forces, including military medical 
        doctors, of hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat traumatic brain 
        injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.

            ``(2) The Administrator shall assume authority and 
        responsibility for maintenance and operation of the database

        undertaken by the Administrator shall employ fraud prevention 
        measures at the time of the initial application, through 
        detection and monitoring processes after initial acceptance, by 
        investigating allegations of potential fraud, removing firms 
        that do not quality from the database, and referring cases for 
        prosecution when appropriate.

        that verification is denied or a contract is awarded, of any

Except as provided in paragraph (2) and subject to subsection (b), the 
assignment of performance of a new requirement by the Department of 
Defense to military personnel, civilian personnel, or contractor 
personnel shall be based on a determination of which sector of the 
Department's workforce can perform the services in the most cost-
efficient manner, based on an analysis of the costs to the Federal 
Government in accordance with Department of Defense Instruction 7041.04 
(`Estimating and Comparing the Full Costs of Civilian and Active Duty 
Military Manpower and Contract Support') or successor guidance.

requirements of the Department of Defense under policies and procedures

title for determining the most appropriate and cost-efficient mix of 
military, civilian, and contractor personnel to perform the mission of

Secretary of a military department, the commander of a combatant 
command, or the head of a Defense Agency or activity may waive such

        result in a gap in service that would significantly undermine 
        performance of the mission of the Department of Defense or pose 
        an unacceptable risk; and
            ``(B) a period of 30 days has expired after such 
        certification is so submitted to the committees.

        requirement without regard to whether the employee is a 
        temporary, term, or permanent employee.

new requirement is an activity or function that is not being performed, 
as of the date of consideration for assignment of performance under 
this section, by military personnel, civilian personnel, or contractor 
personnel at a Department of Defense component, organization,

SEC. 1015. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON MEXICO AND CENTRAL AMERICA.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The stability and security of Mexico and the nations of 
        Central America have a direct impact on the stability and 
        security of the United States.
            (2) Over the past decade, a ``balloon effect'' has pushed 
        increased violence and instability into Central America and 
        Mexico from South America.
            (3) Drug cartels and transnational criminal organizations 
        have spread throughout the region, causing instability and lack 
        of rule of law in many nations.
            (4) Illicit networks are used in a variety of illegal 
        activities including the movement of narcotics, humans, 
        weapons, and money.
            (5) According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and 
        Crime, Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world with 
        92 murders per 100,000 people.
            (6) Currently, Mexico is working to reduce violence created 
        by transnational criminal organizations and address issues 
        spurred by the emergence of internal self defense groups.
            (7) United States Northern Command and United States 
        Southern Command lead the efforts of the Department of Defense 
        in combating illicit networking in Mexico and Central America.
            (8) To combat these destabilizing threats, through a 
        variety of authorities, the Department of Defense advises, 
        trains, educates, and equips vetted troops in Mexico and many 
        of the nations of Central America to build their militaries and 
        police forces, with an emphasis on human rights and building 
        partnership capacity.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the Department of Defense should continue to focus on 
        combating illicit networking routes in Mexico and Central 
        America;
            (2) United States Northern Command and United States 
        Southern Command should continue to work together to combat the 
        transnational nature of these threats; and
            (3) the Department of Defense should increase its maritime, 
        aerial and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance 
        assets in the region in order to reduce the amount of illicit 
        networking flowing into the United States.

SEC. 1025. SENSE OF CONGRESS RECOGNIZING THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE SINKING 
              OF U.S.S. THRESHER.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) U.S.S. Thresher was first launched at Portsmouth Naval 
        Shipyard on July 9, 1960.
            (2) U.S.S. Thresher departed Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for 
        her final voyage on April 9, 1963, with a crew of 16 officers, 
        96 sailors, and 17 civilians.
            (3) The mix of that crew reflects the unity of the naval 
        submarine service, military and civilian, in the protection of 
        the United States.
            (4) At approximately 7:47 a.m. on April 10, 1963, while in 
        communication with the surface ship U.S.S. Skylark, and 
        approximately 220 miles off the coast of New England, U.S.S. 
        Thresher began her final descent.
            (5) U.S.S. Thresher was declared lost with all hands on 
        April 10, 1963.
            (6) In response to the loss of U.S.S. Thresher, the United 
        States Navy instituted new regulations to ensure the health of 
        the submariners and the safety of the submarines of the United 
        States.
            (7) Those regulations led to the establishment of the 
        Submarine Safety and Quality Assurance program (SUBSAFE), now 
        one of the most comprehensive military safety programs in the 
        world.
            (8) SUBSAFE has kept the submariners of the United States 
        safe at sea ever since as the strongest, safest submarine force 
        in history.
            (9) Since the establishment of SUBSAFE, no SUBSAFE-
        certified submarine has been lost at sea, which is a legacy 
        owed to the brave individuals who perished aboard U.S.S. 
        Thresher.
            (10) From the loss of U.S.S. Thresher, there arose in the 
        institutions of higher education in the United States the ocean 
        engineering curricula that enables the preeminence of the 
        United States in submarine warfare.
            (11) The crew of U.S.S. Thresher demonstrated the ``last 
        full measure of devotion'' in service to the United States, and 
        this devotion characterizes the sacrifices of all submariners, 
        past and present.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--Congress--
            (1) recognizes the 51st anniversary of the sinking of 
        U.S.S. Thresher;
            (2) remembers with profound sorrow the loss of U.S.S. 
        Thresher and her gallant crew of sailors and civilians on April 
        10, 1963; and
            (3) expresses its deepest gratitude to all submariners on 
        ``eternal patrol'', who are forever bound together by dedicated 
        and honorable service to the United States of America.

            (4) In 2013, nearly 1,700,000 files were downloaded from 
        United States Government information systems, threatening the 
        national security of the United States and placing the lives of 
        United States personnel at extreme risk. The majority of the 
        information compromised relates to the capabilities, 
        operations, tactics, techniques, and procedures of the Armed 
        Forces of the United States, and is the single greatest

SEC. 1089. FINDINGS; SENSE OF CONGRESS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Vietnam Veterans Memorial continues to be a popular 
        and important place of reflection and healing for a generation.
            (2) The simple inscriptions of the names of the Nation's 
        dead bear mute testimony to the sacrifice of more than 58,000 
        Americans, serving as a deep source of comfort and pride for 
        the families of those who were lost.
            (3) 74 sailors were lost aboard the USS Frank E. Evans, 
        which sank after colliding with the HMAS Melbourne on June 3, 
        1969, during a Southeast Asia Treaty Organization exercise just 
        outside the designated combat zone.
            (4) The Frank Evans had been providing support fire for 
        combat operations in Vietnam before the exercise that resulted 
        in the accident and was scheduled to return after the exercise.
            (5) The families of the 74 men lost aboard the USS Frank E. 
        Evans have been fighting for decades to have their loved ones 
        added to the Memorial.
            (6) Exceptions have been granted to inscribe the names on 
        the Vietnam Veterans Memorial for other servicemembers who were 
        killed outside of the designated combat zone, including in 1983 
        when President Ronald Reagan ordered that 68 Marines who died 
        on a flight outside the combat zone be added to the wall.
            (7) Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, in a letter dated 
        December 15, 2010, expressed support for the addition of the 74 
        names of the men lost aboard the USS Frank E. Evans to the 
        Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
            (8) The heroism and sacrifice should never go unrecognized 
        because of an arbitrary line on a map.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the 
Secretary of Defense should order that the names of the 74 military 
personnel lost aboard the USS Frank E. Evans on June 3, 1969, be added 
to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

SEC. 1090A. SENSE OF CONGRESS RECOGNIZING THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE 
              ALLIED AMPHIBIOUS LANDING ON D-DAY, JUNE 6, 1944, AT 
              NORMANDY, FRANCE.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) June 6, 2014, marks the 70th anniversary of the Allied 
        assault at Normandy, France, by American, British, and Canadian 
        troops, which was known as Operation Overlord.
            (2) Before Operation Overlord, the German Army still 
        occupied France and the Nazi government still had access to the 
        raw materials and industrial capacity of Western Europe.
            (3) The naval assault phase on Normandy was code-named 
        ``Neptune'', and the June 6th assault date is referred to as D-
        Day to denote the day on which the combat attack was initiated.
            (4) The D-Day landing was the largest single amphibious 
        assault in history, consisting of approximately 31,000 members 
        of the United States Armed Forces, 153,000 members of the 
        Allied Expeditionary Force, 5,000 naval vessels, and more than 
        11,000 sorties by Allied aircraft.
            (5) Soldiers of 6 divisions (3 American, 2 British, and 1 
        Canadian) stormed ashore in 5 main landing areas on beaches in 
        Normandy, which were code-named ``Utah'', ``Omaha'', ``Gold'', 
        ``Juno'', and ``Sword''.
            (6) Of the approximately 10,000 Allied casualties incurred 
        on the first day of the landing, more than 6,000 casualties 
        were members of the United States Armed Forces.
            (7) The age of the remaining World War II veterans and the 
        gradual disappearance of any living memory of World War II and 
        the Normandy landings make it necessary to increase activities 
        intended to pass on the history of these events, particularly 
        to younger generations.
            (8) The young people of Normandy and the United States have 
        displayed unprecedented commitment to and involvement in 
        celebrating the veterans of the Normandy landings and the 
        freedom that they brought with them in 1944.
            (9) The significant material remains of the Normandy 
        landing, such as shipwrecks and various items of military 
        equipment found both on the Normandy beaches and at the bottom 
        of the sea in French territorial waters, bear witness to the 
        remarkable material resources used by the Allied Armed Forces 
        to execute the Normandy landings.
            (10) Five Normandy beaches and a number of sites on the 
        Normandy coast, including Pointe du Hoc, were the scene of the 
        Normandy landings, and constitute both now and for all time a 
        unique piece of humanity's world heritage, and a symbol of 
        peace and freedom, whose unspoilt nature, integrity, and 
        authenticity must be protected at all costs.
            (11) The world owes a debt of gratitude to the members of 
        the ``greatest generation'' who assumed the task of freeing the 
        world from Nazi and Fascist regimes and restoring liberty to 
        Europe.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--Congress--
            (1) recognizes the 70th anniversary of the Allied 
        amphibious landing on D-Day, June 6, 1944, at Normandy, France, 
        during World War II;
            (2) expresses gratitude and appreciation to the members of 
        the United States Armed Forces who participated in the D-Day 
        operations;
            (3) thanks the young people of Normandy and the United 
        States for their involvement in recognizing and celebrating the 
        70th Anniversary of the Normandy landings with the aim of 
        making future generations aware of the acts of heroism and 
        sacrifice performed by the Allied forces;
            (4) recognizes the efforts of the Government of France and 
        the people of Normandy to preserve, for future generations, the 
        unique world heritage represented by the Normandy beaches and 
        the sunken material remains of the Normandy landing, by 
        inscribing them on the United Nations Educational, Scientific, 
        and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage List; and
            (5) requests the President to issue a proclamation calling 
        on the people of the United States to observe the anniversary 
        with appropriate ceremonies and programs to honor the 
        sacrifices of their fellow countrymen to liberate Europe.

have been furnished by a nonprofit organization and that are intended 
for distribution to members of the armed forces. Such supplies may be 
transported only on a space available basis.
    ``(b) Limitations.--(1) The Secretary may not transport supplies 
under subsection (a) unless the Secretary determines that--
            ``(A) the transportation of the supplies is consistent with 
        the policies of the United States;
            ``(B) the supplies are suitable for distribution to members 
        of the armed forces and are in usable condition;
            ``(C) there is a legitimate need for the supplies by the 
        members of the armed forces for whom they are intended; and
            ``(D) adequate arrangements have been made for the 
        distribution and use of the supplies.
    ``(2) Procedures.--The Secretary shall establish procedures for 
making the determinations required under paragraph (1). Such procedures 
shall include inspection of supplies before acceptance for transport.

SEC. 1090C. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON AIR FORCE FLIGHT TRAINING AIRCRAFT.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The Air Force uses the T-1A aircraft to train Air Force 
        pilots to operate tanker and transport aircraft.
            (2) The Air Force is seeking a replacement aircraft for the 
        T-1A which is experiencing obsolescence issues and high costs.
            (3) An effective way to mitigate the T-1A's cost, 
        obsolescence, and complexity issues until a permanent 
        replacement aircraft enters service, is to utilize contractor-
        owned, contractor-operated modern aircraft in the very light 
        jet category.
            (4) Conducting very light jet training via a contractor-
        owned, contractor-operated contract vehicle could provide 
        increased flexibility and reduce unnecessary ownership costs.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the 
Secretary of the Air Force should formally assess the operational 
feasibility, costs, potential savings, and readiness implications of 
utilizing contractor-owned, contractor-operated, very light jet 
aircraft for interim flight instruction until a permanent replacement 
for the T-1A enters service.

SEC. 1090D. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON ESTABLISHMENT OF AN ADVISORY BOARD ON 
              TOXIC SUBSTANCES AND WORKER HEALTH.

        of the Department of Labor site exposure matrix;
            (2) conduct periodic peer reviews of, and approve, medical 
        guidance for part E claims examiners with respect to the 
        weighing of a claimant's medical evidence;
            (3) obtain periodic expert review of evidentiary 
        requirements for part B claims related to lung disease 
        regardless of approval;
            (4) provide oversight over industrial hygienists, 
        Department of Labor staff physicians, and Department of Labor's 
        consulting physicians and their reports to ensure quality, 
        objectivity, and consistency; and
            (5) coordinate exchanges of data and findings with the 
        Advisory Board on Radiation and Worker Health to the extent 
        necessary (under section 3624 the Energy Employees Occupational 
        Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (42 U.S.C. 7384o).

SEC. 1217. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON UNITED STATES MILITARY COMMITMENT TO 
              OPERATION RESOLUTE SUPPORT IN AFGHANISTAN.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the United States continues to have vital national 
        security interests in ensuring that Afghanistan remains a 
        stable, sovereign country and that groups like Al Qaeda, the 
        Haqqani Network, and the Quetta Shura Taliban are not able to 
        use Afghanistan as a safe haven from which to launch attacks;
            (2) the United States should have a residual presence in 
        Afghanistan to train, advise, and assist the ANSF, conduct 
        counterterrorism operations, and support force protection 
        requirements in order to maintain the gains achieved in 
        Afghanistan;
            (3) it is in the interests of both the United States and 
        Afghanistan to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement as soon as 
        practicable after the new President of Afghanistan is sworn in;
            (4) the United States should provide financial, advisory, 
        and other necessary support to the ANSF, at the authorized end-
        strength of 352,000 personnel, through 2018;
            (5) the train, advise, and assist mission, following the 
        end of the NATO mission on December 31, 2014, should be able to 
        assist the ANSF in all parts of Afghanistan;
            (6) uncertainty with the signing of the Bilateral Security 
        Agreement with Afghanistan is threatening the gains achieved by 
        the United States and coalition forces and the United States' 
        enduring vital national security interests in Afghanistan and 
        the region;
            (7) the President should announce the United States 
        residual presence for Operation Resolute Support to reassure 
        the people of Afghanistan and to provide a tangible statement 
        of support for the future of Afghanistan;
            (8) the United States should aggressively work with NATO 
        and the Government of Afghanistan to achieve a status of forces 
        agreement for NATO forces in support of the post-2014 mission; 
        and
            (9) NATO member countries pledged their support and long-
        term commitment to Afghanistan at the Lisbon, Chicago, and 
        Tokyo conferences and should honor their commitments to 
        Afghanistan and the ANSF.

SEC. 1220. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The people of Afghanistan have taken the lead in 
        providing for the security of their country and the successful 
        elections are a positive step in the self-determination of the 
        future of Afghanistan.
            (2) However, no country can be successful in the long-term 
        if a majority of its population is not included in the dialogue 
        and decision-making of such country.
            (3) The women of Afghanistan have made historic strides in 
        the last several years and the elections prove that the women 
        need and have a right to have a voice in the future of 
        Afghanistan.
            (4) To that end, the women of Afghanistan are vital to the 
        development of Afghanistan and the national security of 
        Afghanistan;
            (5) Women are needed to serve Afghanistan in the Afghan 
        National Security Forces (ANSF), not just for the future 
        standing of women in society, but for cultural reasons.
            (6) Therefore, it is important that Afghanistan move 
        forward in increasing the number of women in the ANSF with the 
        current facilities and capacity to meet the requirements 
        Afghanistan has proposed to achieve.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the allocation of $25,000,000 for fiscal year 2014 for 
        the ANSF should be prioritized for the recruitment, retention, 
        and training of women in the ANSF;
            (2) current facilities to support women in the ANSF should 
        be fully utilized before additional infrastructure is 
        constructed;
            (3) the Government of Afghanistan should ensure that the 
        fund provided prioritize efforts to increase the number of 
        women serving in the ANSF, as proposed in the Master 
        Ministerial Development Plan for Afghan National Army (ANA) 
        Gender Integration;
            (4) as part of such plan, the conversion of the 13,000 
        women that were trained to support the elections is an 
        important step in increasing the number of women in the ANSF;
            (5) the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan's 
        report, ``A Way to Go: An Update on Implementation of the Law 
        on Elimination of Violence Against Women in Afghanistan'', 
        should be integrated into efforts to enable women to serve in 
        the ANSF; and
            (6) the United States should continue to advocate for the 
        rights and participation of women in Afghanistan in all levels 
        of government and society.

            (1) The attacks of September 11, 2001, killed approximately 
        3,000 people, most of whom were Americans, but also included 
        hundreds of individuals with foreign citizenships, nearly 350 
        New York Fire Department personnel, and about 50 law 
        enforcement officers.
            (2) Downed United Airlines flight 93 was reportedly 
        intended, under the control of the al-Qaeda high-jackers, to 
        crash into the White House or the Capitol in an attempt to kill 
        the President of the United States or Members of the United 
        States Congress.
            (3) The September 11, 2001, attacks were largely planned 
        and carried out by the al-Qaeda terrorist network led by Osama 
        bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al Zawahiri, after which Osama 
        bin Laden enjoyed safe haven in Pakistan from where he 
        continued to plot deadly attacks against the United States and 
        the world.
            (4) The United States has obligated nearly $30 billion 
        between 2002 and 2014 in United States taxpayer money for 
        security and economic aid to Pakistan.
            (5) The United States very generously and swiftly responded 
        to the 2005 Kashmir Earthquake in Pakistan with more than $200 
        million in emergency aid and the support of several United 
        States military aircraft, approximately 1,000 United States 
        military personnel, including medical specialists, thousands of 
        tents, blankets, water containers and a variety of other 
        emergency equipment.
            (6) The United States again generously and swiftly 
        contributed approximately $150 million in emergency aid to 
        Pakistan following the 2010 Pakistan flood, in addition to the 
        service of nearly twenty United States military helicopters, 
        their flight crews, and other resources to assist the Pakistan 
        Army's relief efforts.
            (7) The United States continues to work tirelessly to 
        support Pakistan's economic development, including millions of 
        dollars allocated towards the development of Pakistan's energy 
        infrastructure, health services and education system.
            (8) The United States and Pakistan continue to have many 
        critical shared interests, both economic and security related, 
        which could be the foundation for a positive and mutually 
        beneficial partnership.
            (9) Dr. Shakil Afridi, a Pakistani physician, is a hero to 
        whom the people of the United States, Pakistan and the world 
        owe a debt of gratitude for his help in finally locating Osama 
        bin Laden before more innocent American, Pakistani and other 
        lives were lost to this terrorist leader.
            (10) Pakistan, the United States and the international 
        community had failed for nearly 10 years following attacks of 
        September 11, 2001, to locate and bring Osama bin Laden, who 
        continued to kill innocent civilians in the Middle East, Asia, 
        Europe, Africa and the United States, to justice without the 
        help of Dr. Afridi.
            (11) The Government of Pakistan's imprisonment of Dr. 
        Afridi presents a serious and growing impediment to the United 
        States' bilateral relations with Pakistan.
            (12) The Government of Pakistan has leveled and allowed 
        baseless charges against Dr. Afridi in a politically motivated, 
        spurious legal process.
            (13) Dr. Afridi is currently imprisoned by the Government 
        of Pakistan, a deplorable and unconscionable situation which 
        calls into question Pakistan's actual commitment to countering 
        terrorism and undermines the notion that Pakistan is a true 
        ally in the struggle against terrorism.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that Dr. Shakil 
Afridi is an international hero and that the Government of Pakistan 
should release him immediately from prison.

SEC. 1225. REPORT ON NON-COMPLIANCE BY THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION OF ITS 
              OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE INF TREATY.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) the Russian Federation is in material breach of its 
        obligations under the Treaty Between the United States of 
        America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the 
        Elimination of Their Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range 
        Missiles, commonly referred to as the Intermediate-Range 
        Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, signed at Washington December 8, 
        1987, and entered into force June 1, 1988; and
            (2) such behavior poses a threat to the United States, its 
        deployed forces, and its allies.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the President should hold the Russian Federation 
        accountable for being in material breach of its obligations 
        under the INF Treaty;
            (2) the President should demand the Russian Federation 
        completely and verifiably eliminate the military systems that 
        constitute the material breach of its obligations under the INF 
        Treaty;
            (3) the President should seriously consider not engaging in 
        further reductions of United States nuclear forces generally 
        and should seriously consider not engaging in nuclear arms 
        reduction negotiations with the Russian Federation specifically 
        until such complete and verifiable elimination of the military 
        systems has occurred; and
            (4) the President, in consultation with United States 
        allies, should consider whether it is in the national security 
        interests of the United States to unilaterally remain a party 
        to the INF Treaty if the Russian Federation is still in 
        material breach of the INF Treaty beginning one year after the 
        date of the enactment of this Act.
    (c) Report.--Not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment 
of this Act, and every 90 days thereafter, the President shall submit 
to the appropriate congressional committees an unclassified report that 
includes the following:
            (1) The status of the President's efforts, in cooperation 
        with United States allies, to hold the Russian Federation 
        accountable for being in material breach of its obligations 
        under the INF Treaty and obtain the complete and verifiable 
        elimination of its military systems that constitute the 
        material breach of its obligations under the INF Treaty.
            (2) The President's assessment as to whether it remains in 
        the national security interests of the United States to remain 
        a party to the INF Treaty, and other related treaties and 
        agreements, while the Russian Federation is in material breach 
        of its obligations under the INF Treaty.
    (d) Appropriate Congressional Committees.--In this section, the 
term ``appropriate congressional committees'' means--
            (1) the congressional defense committees;

        Committee on Intelligence of the Senate; and
            (3) the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Permanent

SEC. 1226. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING RUSSIAN AGGRESSION TOWARD 
              UKRAINE.

    It is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the continuing and long-standing pattern and practice 
        by the Government of the Russian Federation of physical, 
        diplomatic, and economic aggression toward neighboring 
        countries is clearly intended to exert undue influence on the 
        free will of sovereign nations and peoples to determine their 
        own future;
            (2) the Russian military build-up and aggressive posture on 
        the eastern border of Ukraine represent a deliberate intent to 
        intimidate Ukraine and to force its citizens to submit to 
        Russian control;
            (3) the Russian Federation should immediately cease all 
        improper and illegal activities in Ukraine;
            (4) the 1994 Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, 
        which was executed jointly with the Russian Federation, 
        Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, represents a commitment to 
        respect the independence, sovereignty, and territorial 
        integrity and borders of Ukraine, and Russian actions clearly 
        violate the commitment made by the Russian Federation in that 
        memorandum;
            (5) the security cooperation with the Ukrainian military by 
        the United States military is an important opportunity to 
        support the continued professionalization of the Ukrainian 
        military;
            (6) an enhanced military presence and readiness posture of 
        the United States military in Europe is key to deterring 
        further Russian aggression and assuring allies and partners; 
        and
            (7) the treaty commitments under Article 5 of the North 
        Atlantic Treaty signed at Washington, April 4, 1949, and 
        entered into force August 24, 1949, are important and a 
        cornerstone to international security.
