Background

    In January of 2002, in his State of the Union Address, President 
Bush called on all Americans to dedicate 4,000 hours or two years of 
their lives to volunteer service. He created the USA Freedom Corps, a 
coordinating office at the White House, to oversee these efforts and to 
bring increased attention to the ways in which the Administration could 
work together to enhance opportunities for all Americans to serve their 
neighbors and their nation. The response has been positive. Last year, 
64.5 million Americans volunteered, an increase of more than 5 million 
since 2002.
    In support of the President's call to service, the Corporation 
created an electronic Record of Service to provide the general public a 
way to track their service activities and individually record their 
volunteer service hours. Use of this tracking tool is 100 percent 
electronic in that users establish a user ID and password that 
automatically creates an account which is only accessible to that 
individual user. The Record of Service can only be updated by the user 
who established the account. The Record of Service has received heavy 
public use and is a primary way for individuals to track their 
eligibility for the President's Volunteer Service Award.

Corps Web site at http://www.usafreedomcorps.gov or the President's 
Volunteer Service Award Web site at, http://
