PROCLAMATION 6425—APR. 29, 1992 106 STAT. 5251 try by educating our children about its past, by encouraging them to take pride in all that America means to the world, and by setting examples of personal responsibility, strong moral character, and good citizenship. The millions of Americans who volunteer their time and talents to help solve various social problems likewise testify to their love of this great land. Today we remember especially the courageous members of our all-volunteer armed forces, as well as the many heroes who have gone before them in battle, proving with their very lives the depth of their commitment to liberty and self-government. These and all Americans demonstrate that our country is, indeed, as President Hayes once described it, "a union depending not upon the constraint of force, but upon the loving devotion of a free people." To foster loyalty to the principles on which the United States is founded, the Congress, by joint resolution approved July 18, 1958 (72 Stat. 369; 36 U.S.C. 162), has designated May 1 of each year as "Loyalty Day. " NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 1992, as Loyalty Day. I call on all Americans to observe that day with appropriate ceremonies and activities, including public recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States. I also call on all Government officials to display the flag on all Government buildings and grounds on that day. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty- eighth day of April, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and sixteenth.
