HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
         WHEREAS, Texas and the nation owe an immeasurable debt to the
  men and women of our armed forces, who have helped to secure and
  preserve our democratic freedoms; and
         WHEREAS, On Veterans Day, employers should seek to honor the
  service and sacrifice of veterans in their employment by allowing
  them flexibility in celebrating this important day; and
         WHEREAS, Veterans of the U.S. armed forces have demonstrated
  their bravery and patriotism by answering their nation’s call to
  duty, stepping forward to serve in many different capacities and
  locations, often placing themselves in harm’s way to safeguard our
  liberty and security; today, they continue to make valuable
  contributions as involved members of their communities, and they
  are deserving of our profound respect and gratitude; now,
  therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the 87th Legislature of the State of Texas
  hereby encourage employers to look for ways to honor veterans on
  Veterans Day, including allowing veterans a day off in appreciation
  for their service.
