IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

May 24, 2018

    Mrs. Hyde-Smith submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


RESOLUTION

    Designating the week of September 23 through September 29, 2018 as “Gold Star Families Remembrance Week”.

    Whereas the last Sunday in September—

    (1) is designated as “Gold Star Mother's Day” under section 111 of title 36, United States Code; and

    (2) was first designated as “Gold Star Mother's Day” under the Joint Resolution entitled “Joint Resolution designating the last Sunday in September as ‘Gold Star Mother's Day’, and for other purposes”, approved June 23, 1936 (49 Stat. 1895);

    Whereas there is no date dedicated to families affected by the loss of a loved one who died in service to the United States;

    Whereas a gold star symbolizes a family member who died in the line of duty while serving in the Armed Forces;

    Whereas the members and veterans of the Armed Forces, through their service, bear the burden of protecting the freedom of the people of the United States;

    Whereas the selfless example of the service of the members and veterans of the Armed Forces, as well as the sacrifices made by the families of those individuals, inspires all individuals in the United States to sacrifice and work diligently for the good of United States; and

    Whereas the sacrifices of the families of the fallen members of the Armed Forces and the families of veterans of the Armed Forces should never be forgotten: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate—

(1) designates the week of September 23 through September 29, 2018, as “Gold Star Families Remembrance Week”;

(2) honors and recognizes the sacrifices made by the families of members of the Armed Forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice in order to defend freedom and protect the United States and by the families of veterans of the Armed Forces; and

(3) encourages the people of the United States to observe Gold Star Families Remembrance Week by—

(A) performing acts of service and good will in their communities; and

(B) celebrating families in which loved ones have made the ultimate sacrifice so that others could continue to enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
