                       Thursday, October 13, 2011

  Mr. GRAVES of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, I proudly pause to recognize 
Andrew Vernon of Versailles, Missouri, on his 80th birthday.
  Andrew is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, entering 
the service in 1952 and retiring as a Master Sergeant in 1973. During 
that time, Andrew served in Germany and in Vietnam, where he was 
awarded the Bronze Star for his meritorious service, along with other 
decorations. After his service, Andrew returned to Missouri with his 
wife of 61 years, Inis, and two daughters, where he worked as a real 
estate agent and continued in service to his community and peers.
  Mr. Speaker, I proudly ask you to join me in wishing Andrew Vernon a 
happy 80th birthday and in thanking him for his service to our country.
