A worthy proclamation

"Now, therefore, be it resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), that Congress commends the patriotic contributions of the roofing professionals who replaced, at no cost to the Federal Government, the section of the Pentagon's slate roof that was destroyed as a result of the terrorist attacks against the United States that occurred on September 11, 2001."—House Congressional Resolution 424.

So read the formal resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in a special session on June 25. The resolution was issued the same day a ceremony was held on the Pentagon's grounds to thank the major contributors to the NRCA Pentagon Project.

Reps. Nydia Velázquez (D-N.Y.), Donald Manzullo (R-Ill.) and Gary Miller (R-Calif.) personally recognized the many contributors in attendance.
