To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4503) to memorialize the United States House of Representatives to enact H.RES. 103 which establishes a select committee on POW and MIA affairs in the United States, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
WILLIAM MESCHER for Committee.
TO MEMORIALIZE THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO ENACT H.RES. 103 WHICH ESTABLISHES A SELECT COMMITTEE ON POW AND MIA AFFAIRS IN THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Whereas, Representative Peter King (R-NY) has introduced H.RES.103 to establish in the United States House of Representatives a Select Committee on POW and MIA (Prisoner of War/Missing in Action) Affairs; and
Whereas, according to the legislation: "The select committee shall conduct a full investigation of all unresolved matters relating to any United States personnel unaccounted for from the Vietnam era, the Korean conflict, World War II, and the Gulf War, including MIA's and POW's; and
Whereas, the United States government has yet to account for all of our missing servicemen and some civilians lost during war time, and a great many questions remain unanswered; and
Whereas, the United States Senate Select Committee on POW and MIA Affairs has done work in this area but major follow up is still required; and
Whereas, it is therefore necessary that a United States House of Representatives Select Committee on POW and MIA Affairs be established to help finish the work that needs to be done. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of South Carolina, by this resolution, memorializes the United States House of Representatives to enact H.RES. 103 which establishes a select committee on POW and MIA Affairs in the United States House of Representatives.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the members of the United States House of Representatives from South Carolina and the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.
