(E) ANNIVERSARY OF THE RECOGNITION OF THE CROATIAN STATE
Dear Croatian American Friends, 
 
 
In January 1992, following a heroic war for freedom and democracy, the world 
recognized the independence of the Republic of Croatia. On JANUARY 19th, 
2002, the Croatian American community will hold a HOLY MASS at the Croatian 
Catholic Church in Los Angeles in honor of this historic event. Following 
Mass, we will celebrate the 10th ANNIVERSARY OF THE RECOGNITION OF THE 
CROATIAN STATE with a GALA BANQUET in the Parish Hall. 
 
 
The guns in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina are now silent, and Croatia is 
an independent nation. But when you join us on January 19th, you will hear 
firsthand from our honored guests GENERAL KRESIMIR COSIC, HDZ VP MAJA 
FREUNDIC and DR. JOSIP MUSELIMOVIC that the Croatian people's hard fought 
independence is not secure. They will tell you that the Croatian people's 
existence as one of the constituent nations of BiH is endangered. On 
January 19th, our guests will speak frankly about recent events in BiH. They 
will tell you how your assistance can ensure that the independence and the 
existence of the Catholic Croatian nation in BiH will not be lost. 
 
 
On January 19th, you will hear that there is hope. In large part, the future 
of Croatia and the fate of Croatian nation in BiH will depend upon the 
actions of the United States of America. If we stand together, we can insure 
that that our government in Washington is fair to Croatia and the Croats of 
BiH. 
 
 
In our advocacy of the Croatian cause, we must not allow the liberation of 
Croatian territory to be cast as a criminal act. We must do all in our power 
to help those who defended Croatia in her time of need. We must oppose those 
in the international community who wish to rewrite history. Together, we 
must look to the future for a better life for the Croatian people. But that 
better life for the Croatian people will remain in jeopardy if Croatia's 
independence is compromised and if Croats no longer exist as one of the 
constituent nations of BiH. 
 
 
This new year, please join the CAA and our honored guests to defend the 
course that the Croats of the world set upon over a decade ago: An 
independent and prosperous Croatia, along with constituent national people's 
status for the Croats of BiH.
