DESIGNATING JULY 16, 1994, AS "ATOMIC VETERANS DAY" IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, July 16, 1945 is the day when the first atomic bomb was exploded; and
Whereas, on August 6, 1945, the first wartime atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, and, on August 9, 1945, the second wartime atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki; and
Whereas, half a million United States service personnel were involved in the atmospheric nuclear testing of the 1940's, 1950's, and 1960's, according to the latest figures available; and
Whereas, the General Assembly feels certain recognition is in order to honor and remember the service personnel who were thus involved. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, designates July 16, 1994, as "Atomic Veterans Day" in South Carolina.
