  Mr. CORREA. Madam Speaker, today, I am introducing a House Resolution 
recognizing the accomplishments and contributions of Vietnamese 
Americans. I represent one of the largest Vietnamese communities in the 
United States, and I am proud to recognize the valuable contribution of 
1.7 million Vietnamese Americans living in this nation. The United 
States is home to the largest number of individuals of Vietnamese 
descent outside of Vietnam. Currently more than 70,000 reside in 
California's 46th Congressional District.
  In the aftermath of the Vietnam War, approximately 800,000 Vietnamese 
refugees fleeing persecution resettled in the United States. Today, 
Vietnamese Americans contribute to American society through their work 
in. business, education, science and technology, engineering, 
mathematics, literature and the arts, gastronomy, the armed forces, and 
public service at every level of government.
  Vietnamese Americans add to the rich cultural and religious diversity 
of our nation. As a

member of the Congressional Vietnam Caucus, it is critical that we 
continue to represent and celebrate our Vietnamese families, friends, 
and neighbors, and recognize their significant contributions to 
American society.
