                Proclamation 9343 of October 5, 2015

                
German-American Day, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Throughout our history, German Americans have woven 
                distinct threads into the fabric of our country. In 
                extraordinary ways--by crossing the Atlantic, planting 
                roots in communities across our country, and spurring 
                shared advances--German Americans have proven our 
                Nation's diversity makes our society ever stronger. On 
                German-American Day, we celebrate the immeasurable ways 
                their talents and ideas have helped shape the progress 
                of our time.

                Since their earliest days on America's shores, the 
                German people have striven to realize the fundamental 
                promise that everyone deserves the chance to make of 
                their lives what they will. Building up our society as 
                architects and artists, inventors and engineers, they 
                continue to push boundaries and bolster dreams in their 
                communities and across our country. From their service 
                in our Armed Forces to our classrooms, we see the 
                strength and passion of German heritage integrated into 
                the identity of our American family.

                The stories of German-American men and women also 
                remind us of the important partnership between our two 
                nations. In the 70 years since the end of World War II 
                and the quarter century since the fall of the Berlin 
                Wall, Americans and Germans have inspired each other 
                and worked to address key challenges that affect the 
                world we share. From combatting violent extremism and 
                climate change to expanding economic and educational 
                opportunity for women and girls, our common principles 
                bind us together as inseparable allies. As we 
                commemorate the strong friendship between our peoples, 
                may we never forget our unique histories, and may we 
                continue working together to reach for a more peaceful 
                and prosperous future.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim October 6, 2015, as 
                German-American Day. I encourage all Americans to learn 
                more about the history of German Americans and reflect 
                on the many contributions they have made to our Nation.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                fifth day of October, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and fortieth.
