HOUSE CONCURRENT
RESOLUTION



        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION urging the Indiana General Assembly to fly the POW/MIA flag in the House and Senate Chambers.

    Whereas, More than 83,000 Americans are missing from World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, and the 1991 Gulf War;

    Whereas, In 1990, the 101st Congress officially recognized the POW/MIA flag;

    Whereas, Congress designated the flag as "the symbol of our Nation's concern and commitment to resolving as fully as possible the fates of Americans still prisoner, missing and unaccounted for in Southeast Asia, thus ending the uncertainty for the families and the Nation" (Public Law 101-355);

    Whereas, The POW/MIA flag has flown over the White House on National POW/MIA Recognition Day since 1982, and, with the exception of the American flag, the POW/MIA flag is the only flag to fly over the White House and continually over the Capitol rotunda; and

    Whereas, The message of the POW/MIA flag is spread only when the flag is visible: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives

of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana,

the Senate concurring:

    SECTION 1. That the Indiana General Assembly is urged to fly the

POW/MIA flag in the House and Senate Chambers in accordance with federal regulations in recognition of those still missing as a result of armed conflicts around the world. The people of the state of Indiana recognize the great sacrifice these brave men and women made for their country and the sacrifices their families continue to make.
