Well it's because we want to give back a small portion of what we have been given, we want our children to know what it meant to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, and we want others to realize what tremendous honor it is to live in the country based on the highest ideals that man has ever known and we realize what a privilege it is to be an American,

to be a North Carolinian, and to serve and protect the very freedoms upon which this nation was founded. [FOREIGN] all places are burned in our hearts and in our minds, if there were other places, places that we sometimes couldn't even pronounce and places sometimes we didn't even know where we were, places that we were not even there, except we were there. places that no one has ever heard about but we were there too. And there were those that simply disappeared never to be known or to know. Yes, we were there too. We answered the call saluted smartly and charged the hill. I stand with you today proud to be an American, A veteran and the citizen living in the land that provides the brightest beacon of hope and freedom in the world. We all here commit ourselves to seeing that beacon continue to shine brightly for years and generations to come. Today we honor those Americans that served and sacrificed, those Persons that put themselves forward, wrote a check in the amount of their own life, made it payable to the American people and signed it, often in their own blood. We do this so that our community and our country, nay, the entire world can have hope For a peaceful and productive future. Mr. Speaker, I'm proud to stand among these veterans. I'm proud to stand here on the floor and honor those men here with us, that never had a chance to be here with us, and I'm hopeful that there are still some students in this audience that have listened to those words and Pay a little more attention. And I look forward to the time when they too are proud to wear the uniform. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Wake, Representative Martin, rise? >> To debate the resolution. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the resolution. >> Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. I've Been in the house now for over a decade and each year, the Veterans' Lobby Day is my favorite day of the year. When I first got here in 2005, it was an opportunity for me as a young legislator and a young veteran to hear veterans of Vietnam , and Korea and even a few from World War II Come by and tell their stories and just a chance for me to sit there quietly and to listen. I noticed today though for the first time that a large number of the veterans who came today were actually much younger than me. A combination of the fact that we've been at war for an Awful long time now and my advancing age. But the same joy in my heart was there to hear stories from my fellow Afghanistan veterans who were there over a decade after I was and to see the same similarities I had with them that I do with our World War II veterans and Korea and Vietnam Veterans. I think it's very appropriate as the gentleman from Gaston, Representative Hastings, said that we do have members of the General Assembly who are retiring who are veterans as primary sponsors here. If you look at the data both in Congress and in the North Carolina General Assembly, we have declining number of veterans actually serving. And so as we're saying goodbye to those for and perhaps other veterans who are members of this body, I hope that any veterans up there listening or listening over the internet will realize they have an obligation to continue their service and to consider service in elected office. Whether you're a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or unaffiliated, it doesn't matter. I do think that we will get better decision-making process both at the federal level and at the state level the more veterans we can get involved in politics. So if you're listening and you're a veteran, it's not time to stop your service to your country yet. Continue it in a new fashion and come join us here in the General Assembly. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Transylvania, Representative Whitmire, rise? >> To commend the resolution. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the resolution. >> Well Members of the House, I will start by reciting a quote that many, many times I and others in my freshman class in the Air Force Academy Had to say and it wasn't always under the easiest of conditions but it has a good message. War is an ugly thing but it's not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of war and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth fighting for is much worse. The person who has nothing which he or she is willing To fight,

nothing which they're willing to sacrifice their own personal safety in many ways is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by better men and women than themselves. Those words are paraphrased From John Stuart Mill from a couple of centuries ago. With this, I rise to honor my fellow veterans, the airmen, the sailors, the soldiers, the marines, the coastguardsmen, the merchant marines from all of our components, as the resolution properly mentioned our active duty, our reserve component which includes the reserve of the Armed Forces Forces, commonly known as reservist, and our guardsmen. They, all of us, past, present and future, defend our nation, our ideals and our way of life. And yet to date, on a solemn note, we've had over 1.3 million Americans, military veterans, who paid the ultimate price and 38,000 continue to be in a missing in action status. Many of our veterans, many, many more who were able to dodge bullets and survive the dangers and return to their families after deploying around the world in their military service to defend our interests and help our nation defend and have the way of life that the world for the most part strives to emulate, return to the civilians sector and have contributed many, many ways to our nation, not as the member of the military but as one who held those ideals that made our society better because of the discipline sacrifice that they gave previously. I decently commend those, when we talk about veterans, those who are currently serving in our armed forces. These service members comprise, are all voluntary military, the greatest in the history of the world And give up many conveniences to ensure that our nation has the most capable might in the world when needed. This is especially important today as we face the constant state of state, non-state, failed nation threats, a whole assembly of traditional and asymmetric threats that Make defending this great nation all the more hard especially when we have things like radical Islam and what have you that threaten our very way of life. Tens of thousands today are deployed around the world and whether they're at home or abroad, our military members give the United States the unique capability to have a round the clock operations and engagements of all types, to hold any target set at risk in any weather at any time when we need to exercise our might. This said in honor of our veterans, and listen here closely, I ask the lord above to watch over [BLANK_AUDIO] to watch over our sons and daughters, our husbands, our men, our wives, our brothers and sisters, to bring them home safely, to wrap his loving hands around those who come into harm’s way and to bring to his side the ones who have lost their lives and to let their loved ones know the peace of mind, the spirit from the To let their loved ones know the peace of mind and spirit and the pain of having lost those loved ones who saw gallantly served so that their children gain the wisdom and ultimately know the purpose that their sacrifice gave so that their generation can continue to have the way of life that we do. I wish I could say that with a clear voice but I will conclude by simply saying this month forward and throughout the year give our veterans past, present and our future veterans appreciation because they paved the way for our freedoms and made our country what it is, those who served in the past or are currently serving let them know you thank them for what they've done and for those families who have suffered loss remember them especially at the end of this month when we have a memorial day, thank you. >> For what purpose dose the gentleman from [INAUDIBLE] representative Brolly rise? >> To speak to the resolution Mr speaker. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the resolution. >> Thank you I think today will probably be the most personal conversation I've ever heard on this floor, I was given a pen today as a Vietnam war veteran and I felt a little uncomfortable with it

[BLANK_AUDIO] I enlisted in 1969 as a pump kid of 19 years old, it was a time of great division in this country and many people were encouraged to resist the draft to go to Canada, to accept the draft and try to deal with it, I made the first true adult decision of my life. In 1969 I enlisted in the United States army simply because I felt I had to make a statement and say that I had picked my side and when I was serving that the men already there would know that I chose to be there, I was not there unwilling, I accepted the duty. I went where they told me to go and I did what they told me to do and for me military service was mostly an inconvenience, I have no wounds, I have no great feats of military proneness on which to brag, but I can say that for two years eight months, three days five hours and approximately 30 minutes I was in the company of men and women of heroic stature, the class of 46 was just ending up the last of their careers, it was my privilege to serve with men that jumped into Normandy on June 5th. I served with a man who crossed the bridge at Raymorgen/g. I knew men that held the Elsenborn ridge against Sepp Deitrech's 6th SS Panzer Army for 30 days in winter snow in January of 1945 and a man whose combat patch was Merrill's Marauders who had spent almost an entire year in the jungles of southeast Asia being resupplied by air. There were men with whom I'd served and I want to name some of them today. There was Skip Johnson who had been a sergeant with the second of the 27th infantry, the wolfhounds of the 25th infantry division, who had been a military historian with the department of the army before going on active duty and began my long seated interest in the history of the military. Clarence Tims, sergeant T, he commanded the lead track of the 11th armored cavalry regiment when they went into Cambodia. Jim Turner, who with the first air cav, was wounded in an engagement that killed two-thirds of his company, a boy had friend John Boy we have played as young man who with a 23rd infantry division also known as the [INAUDIBLE] was horrendously wounded his first week in Vietnam. Serving with this men gave me an example of what to be and I received guidance that begin my first day at Fort Bragg from drill sergeants sergeant first class excuse me platoon sergeant hullaboo, same rank as a sergeant first class but there is a difference. And a sergeant 85 [INAUDIBLE] I serve with a man that I have named and in particular served under man whose leadership showed me what leadership can be, Captain J W Webster, first Lieutenant Louise Bizzaro a Puerto rican who is knight of medieval stature, a first sergeant Robert [INAUDIBLE] who came in in 1945 and finished with me as a box surgeon underneath his command. John W Fester, my last commanding officer a headquarters company of the first course com who had led an A team with a six group in Vietnam, a brigade commander. Last but not least [INAUDIBLE] Aguanaga my last and favorite first sergeant, they made me to a large extent the man I am today, they taught me honor, they taught me courage and encouragement, and by the way encourage means to feel others with courage to face the realities, do the

best you can, stand tall, support your friends. Last, Rooney Griffin, Mike Price, and [INAUDIBLE] whose names are on the wall who as young men not yet old enough to vote, spent all they had to preserve our liberty, for those who made me what I am today, thank you. >> For what purpose does the gentleman and from Cumberland representative Floyd rise? >> To debate the resolution. Thank you Mr. Speaker they dint come by one. They didn't register by two they registered by their thousand to defend this great nation, those that made the sacrifice, those that remained here with us at this great state, at every time for the military, those who fought for this country and I'm one and I can recall the times Mr. Speaker that I volunteered for the army and went into the barracks and those of you who are a little bit younger than I am, remember the wood barracks that we was in, never knew how to, never had a shower to our guide and army, those of you that are much younger don't remember how we used to take a bath, we used to take a bath in a round tin tab, a round tin tab that was the only shower that I knew about, didn't know how to turn the shower on when I was in service, had to have a system from a fellow veteran who would man up the same persuasion that I am, that help me turn the shower on and it feel good too to take a shower for the first time, it truly did, but I'm also so proud to stand before you that you heard me say it many times before that was not for the military. I would not be standing before you here today and I'm proud to serve on a general assembly on the general government where we have a division of the veterans affair and I'm one that always speaks up for that division sometime representative Senator Cleveland get tired but I'm a veteran, and Fort Brag is the home of the 911 caller we need to be called, but all this revolution pays too. 99, I'm not mistaken, sum it, we owe a deed of gratitude to our veterans. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Wake, Representative Pindleton rise? >> To debate the motion. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the resolution. >> Well, I've had a lot of fun memories today and I sort of reflect back, my father was a career Army officer. And I was an army brat. And all these World war ll veterans. My father was a World war ll veteran that I grew up around,that were role models and getting to talk to people that flew B-24's and B-17's ,and were tank commanders and he was just wonderful growing up having people like that from my When I was 18 I decided to join the army and go to college later. I'm glad I did. I think back reporting to Fort Fox, Kentucky in 1967 for basic training and tank training, and it brought a lot of structure into my life, in basic training the things that really matter a lot, not when was there but when I got out, is, we were 44 men in open bay barracks, no petitions between the commodes, open showers and we had people who posed or came from the big cities and we had a Philadelphia [INAUDIBLE] all kinds of people and we don't have to get along, and at first I was wondering how are we gonna get along, at the end of the eight weeks training period, we all did and everybody did well, and it was wonderful, a wonderful experience. So as I think about my career of staying and pulling 26 years but starting out as a private, it just meant so much to me as a young man. It taught me one thing, leadership. And people ask me, isn't it great that you are in the legislature isn't that the highlight of your life? I said no. Being a soldier was the highlight of my life. It's always been that.

My wife knows that. It's always been the highlight of my life. And I just think how many of my friends were killed and wounded in Vietnam. But you know the old saying, it's so true, freedom isn't free. At this time, I would like all the veterans in this body and the staff to stand up. Only three move. Remember that command? Okay. And phase these veterans up here and on my command present harms, [INAUDIBLE] thank you. >> [APPLAUSE] >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Scotland Representative Pierce Rise? >> Mr. Speaker, request of the speaker. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the resolution. Just wanted to make,ask if you could create these comments, of most of our members across the general were appropriate please. To have them in writing or whatever. >> If the comments are just writing that would be done. >> Thank you. >> What purpose does the gentleman from Rockingham , representative Jones rise? >> To debate the resolution. >> The gentleman has the floor to debate the resolution. >> Ladies and gentlemen of the House, it just occurred to me as I listened to the comments that have been made today that every person that has spoken to us is a veteran. As we honor the veterans, I feel like it was appropriate that they hear a word of thanks and appreciation on behalf of those of us who are not veterans. We are here to honor the veterans and it seems like it shouldn't just be veterans honoring veterans. I'm not ready to share the stage with these that have served for what you have done but I did want for someone to stand who did not serve as a veteran or is not a veteran of service to just thank you, to thank everyone here, and thank everyone within the sound of my voice for the freedoms that you fought and secured for us. I wouldn't be eloquent enough to pen something like this but I think it's appropriate to just read this brief little poem that maybe some of you are familiar with but I think it's very appropriate to read it today. It's the soldier not the minister who has given us freedom of religion, it's the soldier not the reporter who has given us freedom of press, it's the soldier not the poet who has given us freedom of speech it's the soldier not the campus organizer who has given us freedom to protest, it's the soldier not the lawyer who has given us the right to a fair trial, it's the soldier not the elected official who has given us the right to vote, it's then soldier who salutes the flag who serves beneath the flag and whos coffin is straight by the flag who allows the protester to urn the flag. Ladies and gentlemen we live in a day when perhaps the spirit of patriotism is not often what it should be compared to times passed, unlike you I have the privilege of meeting often with veterans, veterans of foreign wars, American Legion, all kinds of veterans groups, we have advanced back in my district, a memorial day or veterans day and we have the opportunity to participate and when I go to those it's always a privilege just to be in the company of those that have served, those that were willing to give their lives, but it's also a wonderful thing to see other people who were not veterans and particularly young people who are being thought hopefully a spirit of patriotism, a spirit of love for country, a spirit of love for freedom that we stand for in this country and in particular love and respect for our veterans who fought and many died and others were willing to give their lives for that, so to the veterans here and all over the state of North Carolina and far beyond let us just say thank you. And give our most deep appreciation for your service. >> Further discussion, further debate, if not the question before the house is the adoption of house resolution 1124 those in favor will vote I those opposed will vote NO the court will open the vote.

health and human services, general assembly North Carolina annex. >> The gentleman from McDale Representative Dobson is recognized to debate the bill. >> Thank you Mr. Speaker, members of the house thank you for allowing this bill to be heard today, in the event that I don't repeat myself four times I'll just do it in conjunction together, to start with all four of this bills that we are hearing today came out of the sub committee on state wide early education and family support programs, all four bills passed unanimously out of the study committee and the thing I'm proud of most from this four bills is that we saw input from a lot of the other stakeholders to see what was necessary and what was needed to move the state forward with regard to early childhood. We heard from the local DSS's, we heard from our local partnerships, obviously from the department and we came with four recommendations that we unanimously prove the other sub committee unanimously pass the health committee this morning so I just start practicing my comments with that. With regard to house bill 1012, the problem that we are running into if the child is receiving subsidies in one county and then they move to another county they would have to go to the back of the line and no longer receive those subsidies that they move to another county, so this bill would instruct the department of health and human services to study this issue, to come back to the oversight committee with a recommendation on how on how we can alleviate that problem without adversely affect those that are receiving subsidies in the county that they are moving to. That's what this bill does. It looks to address that issue from when one child moves from one county to another to make sure they don't lose those subsidies and directs the department to come back to the oversight committee with the report on how we can move forward. I appreciate your support. >> Further discussion, further debate? If not, the question before the house is passage of House Bill 1012 on its second reading.

Again bipartisan support, so I appreciate all those other primary sponsors. Representative Horne, Representative Jeter, Representative Earle, Representative Martin and Representative Malone. I also wanna thank them for their help on this bill. House Bill 1013, another issue that we were hearing from our local DSS agencies was the streamlined application process. We had a lot of different applications for a lot of different programs in our state and in our counties. So they came back to us and said, we need a streamlined application process to make it quicker, make it simpler for families that are trying to apply for this subsidies or Pre-K or Smart Start. So we've given the department the authority to come back with a study for us on how we can streamline this process and more appropriately match the child and the family with the program, so that's what we are trying to do with this bill, basically the streamline application process and fit the child in the family with the appropriate program and we think this study and this report from the department will help us do that.

And I'll challenge Dwayne Howl to tell me all the things I missed in this bill because he was part of putting it together. This actually came to us from Study on the court's commission on motions for appropriate relief. As we talk to various judges and members of the committee that were involved in the court, they indicated that motions for appropriate relief were the most time consuming things in court. So they got together actually it was prosecutors and defense bar, particularly public defenders got together and set forth the problems that they thought they could overcome. The first section deals with expert witnesses and once a motion for appropriate relief is filed, the judge is supposed to set it up and tell you what kind of expert witnesses might be called at this motion for appropriate relief. Second section requires that there'll be a judge assigned to The case and the judge is then supposed to review this to see if there is any validity to it at all. For those of us who are lawyers it's more like 12B6. Is there anything on the face that might be valid. If there's not, the judge can simply dismiss it, no other action needs to be taken. If there is validity to it the judge will appoint council for an Unrepresented indigent defendant, when he finds that a hearing is warranted. He can require the appointed council to review the motion and even to modify. The judge can require the state to file an answer or the state can make a motion to file an answer. And then the last provision talks about when a appointed attorney might be appropriate in a motion for For appropriate relief. And that is when the defendant has been convicted of a felony and imprisoned or fined more than $500 and the judge has already reviewed the motion and found that council needs to be appointed. Ask for you support. >> Further discussion,

Thank you. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Alimance Representative Ross rise? >> Thank you Mr. Speaker, moment of personal privilege. >> The gentleman is recognized to speak to a point of personal privilege. >> Members, shortly after Senator Tilace took office in Washington he began visiting military installations around the country and he and his wife spent four, five days at Fort Brad and while Senator Tilace was reviewing the issues pertinent to his senate career, Susan Tilace who is his wife was visiting with the families of a lot of the deployed troops and in visiting with those families over those few days, she discovered that there was a tremendous need for some of the deployed troops that had small infant children. There wives were left behind, many of them left and their children were born after they were deployed and as many of you know, deployment some times can last many, many months. So in making this discovery, she started to doing some research and found that there was an organization, the armed services YMCA at Fort Bragg had created a program to try to help relieve some of this issue, it's called a baby bundle program, some of you may have heard of it and what it does is it delivers essential care items for new born infants to active duty, E4 and below and the dependent spouse of the active duty soldier E4 and below. Some of the items that are need of are baby blankets, onesies/g, baby wipes, slippers medicine spoons, a lot of the things that I haven't had to deal with in years. Diapers, baby clothing, baby books, a number of women around the state have chipped in and are trying to help Miss Tillus in her efforts to raise awareness and also to garner supplies that she will take down to Fort Bragg later this month. We have put a box, we call it a baby bundle box in Representative Jeeders/g office and any of these particular supplies that you feel led to help us accumulate to send down to Fort Bragg will be great appreciated, if you don't know how to buy baby blankets, diapers and that kind of thing, they will take a gift card and the YMCA down at Fort Brad will convert that gift card into these items so any how we can get that would be greatly appreciated and we'll combine altogether with the efforts of Senator Tilace's wife and hopefully we'll have a pretty good start to take down, again the boxes in Representative Jidder's/g office, thank you. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from union, Representative

Horn rise? >> For an announcement. >> The gentleman has the floor for an announcement. >> Thank you Mr. Speaker, the house appropriation committee on education will not sleep until 9:30, we'll get right at it, at 8:30 tomorrow morning unless you hear from the contrary. >> For what purpose does the gentleman from Wake, Representative Stem rise? >> To make a motion. >> Is this the adjournment motion? >> Yeah. >> Let me see if there is any further notices or announcements. >> Any further notices or announcements?

[BLANK_AUDIO] Not sure about it but it does appear at this point that House Bill 958 felony death involving boating, Sheyenne's Law, is at least tentatively re-scheduled to be on for tomorrow. It is the intention of the Chair that we may not have to have any votes on Monday however. And I think Representative Alexander the gentleman's question gives the chair an opportunity to re-iterate the comments by Representative Dower/g that the appropriations committee is going to be working in a very robust manner tomorrow, there actually the chairs would mean today, but tomorrow and possibly on Friday so that we can stay on track to have a budget passed out of this chamber by May the 20th.
