Msg # 243 Date: 30 May 91 00:36:34 From: Christopher Baker To: All Subj: more Presidential documents ____________________________________________________________________________ Title 3 -- Proclamation 6267 of April 3, 1991 The President National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day, 1991 and 1992. By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation The recent war in the Persian Gulf resulted in a great and historic victory for the United States and its coalition partners. While we celebrate the liberation of Kuwait and the triumphant return of our courageous troops, we also pause to remember, with solemn pride, and appreciation, those service members who bore heavy costs in this conflict. Among them are Americans who were held as prisoners of war. The worst kinds of treatment brought out the best in in those American service men and women who were captured during the fighting in the Persian Gulf region. Each upheld the high standards of courage and conduct that we have come to expect of our military personnel. Their [in that order?] faith in Almighty God, their love of family, and their [sez who?] deep sense of patriotism and self-discipline have been and inspiration to us all. ... ... [poignant reminders, etc.] The Congress, by Public Law 102-23, has designated April 9, 1991, and April 9, 1992, as "National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day" and has authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of these occasions. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim April 9, 1991, and April 9, 1992, as National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day. I call upon all Americans to join in remembering former American prisoners of war and their families, who have suffered at the hands of our enemies. I also call upon Federal, State, and local government officials and private organizations to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. IN WITNESS THEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this third day of April, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fifteenth. [signed] George Bush Federal Register: Vol. 56, No. 66; Friday, April 5, 1991. once again a call for 'appropriate ceremonies and activities' [a standard blurb on these things?]. would a parade with a former POW on a cross be good enough for George? does 'observe' mean that other government officials must endorse this proclamation and the language therein?
