RESOLUTION

    Expressing support for the designation of May 1, 2018, as “Silver Star Service Banner Day”.

    Whereas the Senate has always honored the sacrifices made by the wounded and ill members of the Armed Forces;

    Whereas the Silver Star Service Banner has come to represent the members of the Armed Forces and veterans who were wounded or became ill in combat in the wars fought by the United States;

    Whereas the sole mission of the Silver Star Families of America is to evoke memories of the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces and veterans on behalf of the United States through the presence of a Silver Star Service Banner in a window or a Silver Star Flag flying;

    Whereas the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces and veterans on behalf of the United States should never be forgotten; and

    Whereas May 1, 2018, is an appropriate date to designate as “Silver Star Service Banner Day”: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate—
