                Proclamation 7902 of May 13, 2005

                
National Defense Transportation Day and National 
                Transportation Week, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                We rely on the men and women of our transportation 
                industry to ensure efficient, secure, and reliable 
                travel for our citizens and to keep our economy 
                growing. On National Defense Transportation Day and 
                during National Transportation Week, we recognize those 
                who maintain and support our transportation system.

                Our transportation system is vital to our national 
                security. It is used to deploy troops around the world 
                and to deliver crucial equipment and supplies in the 
                field. Each day Americans also rely on our 
                transportation system to reach their travel 
                destinations and to transport billions of tons of 
                freight across our country. My Administration has taken 
                important steps to protect our Nation's bridges, 
                tunnels, highways, waterways, rail lines, pipelines, 
                and airports to help keep our citizens safe and our 
                economy running smoothly.

                Transportation professionals keep our country moving 
                and support our citizens as they conduct business, tour 
                our great Nation, and reunite with family and friends. 
                The strong work ethic and professionalism of 
                transportation employees help increase efficiency and 
                production across our Nation and advance American 
                prosperity. Their efforts reflect the values that make 
                our country strong and help ensure that our 
                transportation infrastructure will continue to benefit 
                Americans for generations to come.

                To recognize the men and women who work in the 
                transportation industry and who contribute to our 
                Nation's well-being and defense, the Congress, by joint 
                resolution approved May 16, 1957, as amended (36 U.S.C. 
                120), has designated the third Friday in May each year 
                as ``National Defense Transportation Day,'' and, by 
                joint resolution approved May 14, 1962, as amended (36 
                U.S.C. 133), declared that the week during which that 
                Friday falls be designated as ``National Transportation 
                Week.''

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, do hereby proclaim Friday, 
                May 20, 2005, as National Defense Transportation Day 
                and May 15 through May 21, 2005, as National 
                Transportation Week. I encourage all Americans to learn 
                how our modern transportation system contributes to the 
                security of our citizens and the prosperity of our 
                country and to celebrate these observances with 
                appropriate ceremonies and activities.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this

                thousand five, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and twenty-ninth.
