      RECOGNIZING CAPTAIN DON GRIGG FOR HIS SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. JOHN BOOZMAN

                              of arkansas

                    in the house of representatives

                        Wednesday, May 26, 2010

  Mr. BOOZMAN. Madam Speaker, I rise to recognize Captain Don Grigg, 
who lived a life of service to his country.
  Grigg proudly served in the Vietnam War where his selflessness earned 
him the Silver Star, a Bronze Star and two Purple Hearts.
  He was a veteran who always remembered what an honor it was to fight 
for freedom and defend liberty. He continued his fight off the 
battlefield as a strong supporter of veterans and worked to get them 
the benefits they earned.
  Grigg's hard work on behalf of our nation's veterans was noticed by 
people across Arkansas. In 2008 Governor Mike Beebe appointed him to 
the Governor's Commission on Veterans Affairs.
  As a man who devoted his life to the United States and our veterans, 
it is fitting that Captain Grigg will be laid to rest with his comrades 
at Arlington National Cemetery.
  We appreciate his service to our country and our veterans appreciate 
his work on their behalf.
