WHEREAS, our greatest resource in this state is our people, dedicated to our state and to our nation, willing to defend our God-given inalienable rights, among these the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and dedicated to God's will and purposes and who are grateful for His love and grace; and WHEREAS, Alabama is blessed to be endowed with those willing to answer the call for military service when our freedoms and way of life have been threatened, many giving their lives as their ultimate sacrifice, others wounded, and others willing to give their all when duty calls; and WHEREAS, Alabamians have answered the call of our nation to serve in all of our branches of armed services in all our nation's wars, with many serving today, preparing to serve in the future at great personal cost, and demonstrating a willingness to give up personal comfort and to sacrifice their future; and WHEREAS, our veterans, past and present, who served and who currently serve in our armed forces, National Guard, and reserve forces represent a heroic cross-section of Alabamians who have endured the dangers of overseas deployment, the risks of service in combat operations, the rigors of military training, and pain and separation from family, friends, and our way of life; and WHEREAS, our Alabama veterans have a proud legacy and are recognized nationally for their willingness to answer the call to serve with dedication in our military forces when needed; and WHEREAS, although it is not possible to repay the personal costs of the military service of Alabama citizens, it is our solemn duty to recognize the many years of honorable service, remember their sacrifices, and honor their heroic service, especially those who have earned the highest military awards of our nation, those who have gone on before us, and those remaining, many of whom are aging; and WHEREAS, we are committed to honoring Alabama veterans by providing tangible support to those who remain and their families and by committing our state's financial resources to their needs when possible in a tangible way throughout their lifetimes; now therefore, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE LEGISLATURE OF ALABAMA, That, we salute our brave Alabama veterans and humbly honor their brave service to protect the freedoms of our great nation; we are forever indebted to these men and women for the monumental sacrifices made for the greater good of mankind.
