WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, December 9, 2004 – While Congress was busy debating and passing a suitable Intelligence bill to help defend our nation’s security and freedoms, the very symbol of those rights (and the U.S.A. itself) was also getting a big boost to secure its own future health and welfare. The “American Bald Eagle Recovery & National Emblem Commemorative Coin Act” (H.R. 4116 & S.2889) was unanimously passed by the House and Senate by the end of the 108th Congress on Wednesday evening.
WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, May. 12, 2004 -/E-Wire/– On June 20, 1782, the U.S.A.’s Founding Fathers selected the Bald Eagle as the central image of the United States national emblem at the Second Continental Congress. Since then, this majestic bird has come to represent the spirit of Freedom and Democracy that makes our nation great.
Challenger, the Bald Eagle, may be soaring to new heights of super-stardom during the coming year. If the non-profit American Eagle Foundation (AEF) gets its wish, the thirteen year-old free flying wonder will soon be featured in children’s books, a line of toys, and even on the silver screen. If those dreams come true, 2002 and beyond could be very prosperous for the U.S.A.’s freedom symbol.
The American Eagle Foundation (AEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Contributions to the American Eagle Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
The AEF's tax identification number is 58-1652023.
