Senate declares July 28 a day to honor the American cowboy
by U.S. Senator Mike Enzi media release
July 25, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. In a tribute to the hard working men and women that helped establish the American West, the U.S. Senate has declared July 28, 2018 National Day of the American Cowboy. The resolution, which the Senate passed unanimously on Tuesday (July 25, 2018), was introduced by U.S. Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso, both R-Wyo., along with Senator Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.

Started in 2005 by U.S. Senator Craig Thomas from Wyoming, the National Day of the American Cowboy traditionally coincides each year with Cheyenne Frontier Days. The resolution honors the culture, traditions and values of the American Cowboy way of life that are still alive today.

The resolution states, "The cowboy embodies honesty, integrity, courage, compassion, respect, a strong work ethic, and patriotism," and that the cowboy archetype "transcends ethnicity, gender, geographic boundaries, and political affiliations."

Other cosponsors of the resolution include Senators James Risch, R-Idaho., Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., John Hoeven, R-N.D., Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, John Thune, R-S.D., James Inhofe, R-Okla., Jon Tester, D-Mont., Tom Udall, D-N.M., Mike Rounds, R-S.D., Michael Bennet, D-Colo., Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., and Dean Heller, R-Nev.
