Expressing support for the individuals impacted by the senseless attack 
at the Washington Navy Yard, and commending and thanking members of the 
    military, law enforcement officers, first responders, and civil 
            servants for their courage and professionalism.

Whereas, on September 16, 2013, a tragic mass shooting took place at the 
        Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C.;
Whereas the people of the United States mourn the loss of the 12 innocent 
        victims who were killed as a result of the mass shooting;
Whereas the Washington Navy Yard serves as headquarters of Naval District 
        Washington and is the workplace of 18,000 military, civilian, and 
        contractor personnel who serve the United States; and
Whereas military officials, law enforcement officers, and other first responders 
        reacted swiftly and courageously to prevent additional loss of life: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the Senate--
            (1) offers its heartfelt condolences to the families, 
        friends, and loved ones of the innocent victims killed or 
        wounded during the horrific violence that took place at the 
        Washington Navy Yard on September 16, 2013;
            (2) offers support and hope for all the individuals who 
        were wounded and discomforted by the mass shooting at the 
        Washington Navy Yard;
            (3) recognizes the difficult healing and recovery process 
        that lies ahead for communities affected by the mass shooting 
        at the Washington Navy Yard;
            (4) honors the courageous and professional service of --
                    (A) the uniformed men and women of the Navy and 
                other members of the United States Armed Forces;
                    (B) all civilian employees who provide support for 
                the United States Armed Forces; and
                    (C) the law enforcement personnel, emergency 
                responders, and medical professionals who responded to 
                and assisted victims of the mass shooting at the 
                Washington Navy Yard;
            (5) thanks those individuals for their selfless and 
        dedicated service; and
