             31      This concurrent resolution of the Legislature and the Governor recognizes the exemplary
             32      efforts of United States military personnel, the President of the United States, and Congress
             33      on behalf of the citizens of the United States in the war on terrorism, and expresses gratitude
             34      for their service.


             35      Be it resolved by the Legislature of the state of Utah, the Governor concurring therein:
             36          WHEREAS, since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States of
             37      America, the citizens of this nation have become united in their desire to comfort those who have
             38      suffered loss from the tragedies, and fixed in their determination to see terrorism defeated;
             39          WHEREAS, United States military forces, supported by forces from friendly nations, have
             40      moved swiftly to fulfill their mission to root out terrorism and its agents and supporters;
             41          WHEREAS, President Bush has moved decisively to mobilize the military, the
             42      government, and the citizens of the United States in meeting the great challenge of preserving
             43      safety and peace;
             44          WHEREAS, Congress has acted with determination and swiftness in supporting the many
             45      initiatives necessary to confront the forces of terrorism;
             46          WHEREAS, Utah has been significantly impacted by the President's and Congress'
             47      mobilization of the armed services;
             48          WHEREAS, all military components stationed in Utah have been mobilized;
             49          WHEREAS, units and personnel from the Utah Army National Guard, the Utah Air
             50      National Guard, the United States Army, the United States Army Reserve, the United States Navy,
             51      the United Naval Reserve, the United States Air Force, the United States Air Force Reserve, the
             52      United States Marine Corps, the United States Marine Corps Reserve, the United States Coast
             53      Guard, and the United States Coast Guard Reserve are serving in support of both the war on
             54      terrorism and in homeland defense;
             55          WHEREAS, the courage, skill, and sacrifice demonstrated by military personnel stationed
             56      in Utah has been a true source of comfort and confidence for the citizens of the state;
             57          WHEREAS, even heartfelt expressions of love and gratitude to all those who stand in
             58      harm's way, especially during these difficult times, are inadequate when weighed against the
             59      danger they face, and the difficulty of separation from loved ones and home;
             60          WHEREAS, the families of United States military personnel possess a unique brand of
             61      courage as they wait with hope and faith for the safe return of those dear to them;
             62          WHEREAS, some United States military personnel have made the ultimate sacrifice in the
             63      war on terrorism, and their families are in need of our support, compassion, and kindness; and
             64          WHEREAS, the strength and resolve of the military, the President, and Congress has
             65      helped to heal the nation's wounds, and fostered greater unity throughout the nation:


             66          NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Legislature of the state of Utah, the
             67      Governor concurring therein, recognize the military units and personnel stationed in Utah and
             68      throughout the nation, and express deep gratitude for their willingness to protect and preserve the
             69      freedoms enjoyed in the United States of America.
             70          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Legislature and the Governor express sincere
             71      gratitude to President Bush and to Congress for standing united and firm against terrorism and
             72      strengthening homeland defense.
             73          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to the President of the
             74      United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House
             75      of Representatives, each branch of the Armed Forces stationed in Utah, and the members of Utah's
             76      congressional delegation.
