AN ACT to amend the executive law, in  relation  to  a  veteran  speaker
  education program within the division of veterans' affairs

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  Legislative findings and intent.  The  legislature  hereby
finds that the defining moments of our nation's history came in wartime,
especially  during  the great conflicts of the twentieth century and the
beginning of the twenty-first century. The legislature further maintains
that it is imperative  that  all  of  society,  and  particularly  young
people, be aware of the contributions of those who participated in these
conflicts as members of the armed forces.
  These  men  and  women  established a remarkable record of service and
sacrifice. They were ordinary men and women who did extraordinary things
to preserve and protect our nation and  its  cherished  freedoms.  Their
personal accounts, which constitute a valuable historical record, are in
danger  of being lost forever as these individuals pass away. The legis-
lature, therefore, has determined that it is necessary  and  appropriate
to  take  steps  to help encourage greater knowledge and appreciation of
veterans, particularly in our schools.
  In this regard, many states have already enacted school-based programs
honoring those who served in the military.   The legislature  now  finds
and  declares  that New York should make available to students, teachers
and administrators in public and private schools  a  new  resource  that
will  encourage  greater  understanding and appreciation of the contrib-
ution of veterans.
  S 2. The executive law is amended by adding a  new  section  353-a  to
read as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD04162-03-3
