Whereas on Sunday December 7 1941 while this negotiation were in progress, military forces of the empire of Japan executed a surprise attack at Prahova Hawaii in the territory of United states and whereas most of the United states specifically was the anchor Prahova on that day and it was the main target of the surprise attack within less than 2 hours Japanese war plane sank and damaged eight battle ships including USS Arizona, three night cruisers, three destroyers and four other vital vessels destroyed, over 130 air craft and killing more than 2400 Americans and we have to asked over Heroes of [xx] to adjust United state congress on December 8th 1945, to ask for decoration of war in open he survives for historic words. Yesterday December 7, 1941 a day which will live in to me, United states of America will certainly and deliberately attack by navy and air-forces of the empire of Japan, and where else on December 11 1941, in support of Japan aggression not [xx] also declare war on the U. S, and whereas because of Japan's unprovoked and dastardly attack on U. S territory, and U. S forces and Nazi Germany's declaration of war, Unites States of America was entered in to World War II, and whereas more 16 million people, courageous Americans, and the greatest generation served with honor, distinction and patriotism fighting in every theater, and operation during that war for the freedoms to enjoy today [xx] cruisial part, and role  in decisive battles around the world, with more than 405, 000 Americans supreme sacrificed in where is over three 360, 000 North Carolinian's served in that war on which more than 6300 were killed and whereas on May 7th, 1945, Nazi Germany surrendered unconditionally to the U.

Firivey[sp?], a veteran of 60 bombing missions in European theater, served as a lead bombardier, dropped the world's first atomic bomb on the state of Hiroshima, Japan which is followed by the second atomic bomb mission in Nagasaki, Japan three days later and whereas on August 14th, 1945 due largely to effects of those

atomic weapons, the Japanese government accepted the provisions of the Huston declaration can create when unconditional surrender making that day as d-day day bringing end to hostilities into Pacific thus ending World War Two and saving an estimated 1 million or more U.

Mr. Akan, you are recognised for remarks the house Representatives I'm Arnold Akas[sp?], I'm a native from North Carolina having been born in Concord. I appreciate you people having us here today is rely nice of you and also I'd like to, want to set a licence of [xx] I was just thinking, I was at the dedication of this building, and worked closely for few years too, but this is my second time to be here, but it is a pleasure to be here and thank you very much. I served in he navy during World War II, I was assigned to the amphibious forces served aboard on LCI we were the ladens for, let God and go, and then we proceeded  to Lwo Jima for that  lalding and well, the most memorable days of my service was the day that they raised  the flag on Mt. Suribachi. You had to see how  glory flower and blaizes  and I figure in it and I'll never forget. It was a day that we'll always remember as long as we live. Little did I realize at that time that I'd be seeing that picture the rest of my life. That after Lwo Jima was completed, we moved on to Ackley Iowa for that landing and afterwards for protection of larger ships, and then sent back to Pearl Harbor for overhaul to get ready to go to for the landing at the Japanese mainland which was to be in October, but then they dropped the bombs and Japan surrendered and we did, we were happy that we wouldn't have to make that landing. It was really a joyous time knowing that

we wouldn't have to make the landing and then I also remember those that had the supreme sacrifice and it wouldn't be coming back, and that feeling still exists for me. Every Victory day I think about it. After that then I went ahead and finished my tour in the Navy, returned to civilian life and studied civil engineering, and had a successful career in that field. Thank you again for having us and God bless you. The gentleman from Union Representative Horn is recognized to debate the resolution.  Thank you Mr speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the house, visitors on the gallery and to the greatest generation from a grateful generation, as was said in the resolution world war 2 lasted a mere six years but merely certainly not the right word from 1939 to 1945. It followed actually the world war 1 also known as the great war by barely 20 years. World war 2 involved the mass vast majority of the nations of the world including all the great powers of Europe and Asia. It was then and it's still is today the most wide spread and deadliest conflict in all of human history. World War II directly involved more that a 100 million people, from over 30 countries.  Enveloped the entire economical, industrial and scientific capabilities of every country, and in death and destruction erased the distinction between civilians and military. America's formal entry into World War II began, as you heard on December 7 1941, when we were sadly and deliberately attacked by the Empire of Japan. The following day, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt asked Congress for a declaration  of war on Japan, and shortly thereafter another declaration of war on Nazi, Germany and the [xx] powers. World War II was marked by mass deaths of military and civilians including the Holocaust which consumed nearly 11 million people and included the use of two major nuclear weapons in combat. All resulting in the end of the war and the saving actually of thousands of American lives, including some of those here with us today. 360000 North Carolinian's served in world war 11 and over 6300 of those North Carolinian's many related to those of us here on the floor and the gallery died in that conflict. Ladies and gentlemen war is a terrible thing, but it's not the most terrible thing. The most terrible thing is to be without hope, and these brave men and women assembled here today gave the world hope in its darkest hour. Last Friday, August 14 marked the 70th anniversary of the surrender of the Empire of Japan and the end of world war two. The men that we honor here are but a few of the less than one million world war two veterans that are still alive in our country it is right that we take this time to honor, remember and thank these men and women of the greatest generation, who vehemently and with great honor gave our nation and the world hope in a time made ever more sinister by the acts of perverted science.

I'm truly proud to stand here on the floor of this North Carolina House of Representatives and express our deepest and most whose heartfelt appreciation of these veterans and their families for their remarkable contributions and service to the people of North Carolina, the United States of America and all of the free world. As has once been said never has so much been owed by so many to so few. They held the torch of freedom high and so let us here be ever mindful of those that have fallen and those that still stand and let us embrace the task of preserving that fragile freedom. It falls to us now to educate our children and grand children about their sacrifice and their dedication and to keep the record accurate and the memory green. Ladies and Gentlemen of the house I commend this resolution too. Thank you Mr. Speaker. The gentle from Rockingham, representative Jones has recognized to debate the resolution. Thank you Mr. Speaker. I don't usually stand when we do this because quite frankly I don't feel worthy, I didn't fight in the armed conflict of war, but I do stand before you as the son of a World War II veteran and recognizing that they are indeed as, my favorite representative Horn said, I believe the greatest generation and just to stand and convey my thanks to that generation. I truly think that, when I think of my own life, that my own life was saved by what was done at the end of World War II. I know that there are those today that still will criticize President Truman and our Military leadership for the way that World War II ended, but I also know that it was sad at the time, and it's still sad that hundreds of thousands and perhaps more lives that were saved, because of the bombs that were dropped in the way that the war was ended, and I think a good chance that my dad was one of those lives that were saved because you say he was scheduled to take part in the invasion of Japan within a couple of weeks after Hiroshima Nagasaki so, I am personally grateful that I'd be given opportunity of life perhaps because of the decisions of those military leaders made. We just cannot say enough to the greatest generation. Ladies and gentlemen as we know freedom is not free. We stand on the broad shoulders of those who came before us, many of whom gave their lives for the freedoms and liberties that we have. Many others who are willing to do so, some as Representative Horn said are with us today, and from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Ladies and gentleman I commend a resolution. The gentlemen form Guildford, Representative Blest[sp?] has recognized to debate the resolution. Thank you Mr speaker and members of the house and honoured guests. I really stand here in awe of that which you did for us and for your country. Just thinking back, and you could almost take a map of Europe or the the goshen[sp?] throw a dot at it and wherever the dot goes tell stories of just incredible valour and heroism in the defensive of freedom, and for that we honour you. For some reason, and the conditions were awful. For some reason the quote from the marine leaving Guave canal has jumped in my mind. When I die I'll go to heaven, to Saint peter I will tell, "One more marine reporting sir. I served my time in hell. " Some of those battles and fighting was in just the most horrible conditions known. [xx] I just salute wholeheartedly to be one of the ones to come in and land those boats and those marines. It was sad of the marines on Guava canal, uncommon courage was a common virtue, and when they raised that flag on Mt. said that marines and Navy personnel all over the landscape could see that flag

going up, it was the most visible terrain feature there and tears came up and combat hardened veterans by that point. I think that was the third day this to see the American flag waving and success in view for all the sacrifice and the carnage and truly it was carnage there was no cover concealment and the people that the Americans that did that just shine and that wasn't the only place it happened for sure but that certainly was. And they did it and lost I think five, six thousand but they saved more lives in Arman that got to land there during the long months of bombing of Japan shot up in plain thinks more lives were saved by Iwo Jima than those lost there and so those who did that sacrificed lived their lives for other Americans, and what an example for us and I wonder sometimes I think about this a lot could we make that challenge today? That's the challenge for us, are ready to do that kind of deeds in defense of our freedom cause there's storms on the horizon there is clouds out there and I think through the ages your accomplishments, your deeds, your sacrifice will stand as a beacon light to us as hope that in a challenge that we have to do the same thing in the defense of freedom, and the only way to truly honor you is to keep the flame of freedom alive in this country for the next generation, and the generations after that, so I thank you, who in the words of Lincoln laid such a costly sacrifice upon the remember the alter of freedom, thank you. The gentleman from Transylvanian Representative Whitmire is recognized to debate the resolution. Thank you Mr Speaker. World War Two came as close to total war as we probably will see, if at least that's the hope nothing ever is that bad. 16 million Americans and so many people from countries at the free world fighting to defend their way of life. If by chance she happens to be listening today, both my grandmother and my grandfather on my mother's side served in uniform in that war. If you're doing the math, my grandmother was serving on the British side, my grandfather and my mother was born in bomb shed during that very war and it was all hands on deck, literally, to protect the freedom of way of life, especially in the theatre for which the war was fought and it was fought in so many places. Mr Speaker I commend the resolution to not commend those who are here who are part of why we have this resolution and so many who've gone on before us and thank you gentlemen from wake representing Mark as recognized to debate the resolution.  Thank you Mr Speaker and thank you members. To our honored guests today I just want you to know that the generation of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who have come after you who are now defending our freedom also hardly a day goes by that they don't look to you and the example you set to guide them as they face some of the same challenges you did. And we as the society also every bit is important. Look at what you did once you came home, you won the war and set about to winning the peace you built upon the foundation laid by our founding fathers and building our country up after defending it, to the great nation that it is today we looked to your example in war time, and we also looked at the example you set in peace, Thank you. The gentleman from Wake, Representative Pendleton is recognized to debate the resolution. I want to thank you veterans thank you so much, every time I think of the second World War, my father was a second Word War veteran and he talked about the battle of the Bulge. He said when they were going out to reinforce thousands of Americans were coming back, they'd lost their weapons they were out of ammunition, and he said the worse thing that greeted them as they were going up, talking about lowering  your morale, was here comes eight tractors and trailers staking platform and they are plied over the top with dead Americans in mattress covers and he said you know it made it

sort of tough to go forward when you encounter that. Snow cold that sort of thing and I ask him and I said, what was I mean what could be worse than you in Europe in snow and living in fox holes and he said, fighting in the pacific. Got a whole lot rather be in that snow than in the pacific so and then two other things that always come to mind is that I had two friends they didn't know one another but both of them had a goal, one to go to Italy to the U. S cemetery near Napals and visit his father's grave. You see his mother was pregnant when the father deployed never saw his father, had another one who went through same thing, the mother was pregnant and wanted to go visit the grave of his father in France. Those were very touching stories so what I'd like to do for the veterans in this group and this time I'll get Representative, I'm going to get the proper commands this time since lambasted me last time. Alright, we'll see how well you veterans remember [xx] that means get on your feet, okay. Right face, present arms holder arms, take seats. We salute you. The gentleman from Moore, Representative Boles is recognized to debate the resolution. Speaking on the resolution, thank you Mr. Speaker. I did not enter the military, I have a lot of respect for military in a profession I think that's the greatest honor we could give all of our citizens when we have military funerals they all deserve it and but I just want to speak in honor of the resolution and at this time I just had two of my colleagues here resident from Moore County, one is a Pearl Harbor, a survivor, and the other is [xx]  survivor which is probably one and only  we were told [xx] layoff in the United states, So I [xx] I can stay up here all day long talking about him, but I would ask that google and read about him Roy swede Berlin[sp?], and just celebrated his 95th birthday at a pawn hurst and Mr. John Mimps[sp?] Aberdeen and I commend the resolution to you. Mr. Mimps is a Botanical Death March survivor Thank you. The gentleman from Gaston, Representative Torbett is recognized to debate the resolution. Thank you Mr, Speaker, I have two little things, one is a hope and one is a prayer. I would hope that this gentlemen leave us today with something those leave us all with undeniable love of country for all the harm and harmship[sp?] you went through that we think we have time for that now ladies and gentlemen nothing like you guys saw and I hope that you will leave us that love of country and the prayer Mr speaker at the end of remarks I think will be appropriate that we have a moment of silence for our brothers and sisters in arms that are no longer with us. We will pause for a moment of silence. Thank you. The gentleman from Cleveland, representative Speciale is recognized to debate the resolution. I want to say thank you. I want to talk about the unassuming nature of those, the greatest generation. All of the things that they have done, they saved the world, they saved liberty. They could have come back, they could have been arrogant, they could have lived the rest of their lives being arrogant about what they are completed but they haven't I just want to tell you a quick anecdote in Newburn[sp?] I was at the airport that many of the World War 2 veterans were coming back from the Ana flight where they got the opportunity for the first time to see the memorial built for them World War Two memorial in Washington, and as they were coming off many of those who were, as they were coming through the line we were lined up on both sides of the sidewalk a long line and they were walking through as they got off the plane and we were shaking their hands and

clapping each one threw one through. I shake their hand and said "Thank you for my freedom. " And one of the leaned over and said, "Well, to tell you the truth he said I was fighting for mine, he said that I'm glad it worked out for you. I want to say thank you because it did work out for me, and it worked out for everyone in this room and thank God that many men like you were around to do the job that needed to be done and God bless you I commend the resolution to you.
