|The 26th Alaska State Legislature, 2009 - 2010|
House Supports Honor And Remember Flag
|HJR 53 Designates Official Symbol for Fallen Soldiers|
Posted: March 29, 2010
(Juneau) - The Alaska State House today unanimously passed House Joint Resolution 53, designating the Honor and Remember Flag ® as a symbol of national gratitude toward service members who have given their lives serving our nation. The House Special Committee on Military & Veterans’ Affairs sponsored the bill.
Men and women have been serving in the United States military and dying for their country for more than 200 years. They deserve a symbol of recognition and honor.
HJR 53 is intended to urge Congress, the Alaska Delegation, and the President and Vice President to encourage passage of U.S. House Resolution 1034. It was introduced in the First Session of the 111th Congress to designate the Honor and Remember Flag ® created by Honor & Remember, Inc., to officially recognize and honor fallen members of the United States military. Alaska is one of the first states to establish a state chapter to support this effort.
