LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim April 12, 2013, as Yellow Ribbon Day in the State of New York

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to pay the highest trib-
ute to the members of the United States Armed Forces during times of
crisis who have so faithfully served their community and country with
courage and commitment contributing to the safety and welfare of others
and the preservation of the freedoms and democratic principles upon
which this State and Nation are founded; and
WHEREAS, The dedication and sacrifices of our military personnel
ensure our continued role as a Nation which embodies the ideals of
democracy, and which is a defender of liberty for peoples throughout the
world; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, it is the sense of this Legislative Body to memori-
alize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim April 12, 2013, as Yellow
Ribbon Day in the State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Many have devoted countless hours distributing yellow ribbons
around the State of New York to heighten awareness and support of our
service men and women who are serving our country, in addition to
promoting unity and respect for those brave individuals who protect our
freedom; and
WHEREAS, The banner of freedom will always wave over our beloved New
York and all of America, the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave;
WHEREAS, Residents of this great State must never forget the courage
with which these men and women served their country, and must recognize
that no greater debt is owed than that owed to those who gave their
lives for their beloved Nation and to those who continue to be missing
in action; and
WHEREAS, American former Prisoners of War are heroes whose service to
our country will never be forgotten; these brave men and women fought
for their country and endured cruelties and deprivation as they helped
to protect our Nation, and to liberate millions from the threats of
tyranny and terror, advancing the cause of freedom worldwide; and
WHEREAS, The freedoms and security we cherish as Americans come at a
very high price for those serving in the military in times of conflict;
it is fitting and proper that we who are the beneficiaries of those who
risk their lives, leaving their families behind, express our appreci-
ation and eternal gratitude for their sacrifices and courageous acts;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim April 12, 2013, as
Yellow Ribbon Day in the State of New York; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
