 THANKING THE ENGINEER MAINTENANCE COMPANY, 4TH MAINTENANCE BATTALION 
                       4TH MARINE LOGISTICS GROUP

                                 ______
                                 

                             HON. LEE TERRY

                              of nebraska

                    in the house of representatives

                         Friday, April 8, 2011

  Mr. TERRY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the Engineer 
Maintenance Company, 4th Maintenance Battalion 4th Marine Logistics 
Group of the United States Marine Corps for their hard work and 
dedication--both for defending our freedom, and to the Omaha running 
community.
  The Omaha Marathon, in its 30th year, is an institution dedicated to 
not only health and fitness, but also to helping numerous charities and 
improving our environment through recycling. On September 26th, 2010, 
40 Marines volunteered at the Omaha Marathon, the Half Marathon, and 
the Ten Kilometer road race.
  The Marines lived up to their reputation--going above and beyond what 
they were asked to do. Prior to the day of the race, the Marine 
volunteers stuffed packets for the runners, helped set up the course, 
and prepared a pasta dinner for the competitors.
  On race day, the Marines were available for help starting at 3 a.m. 
and staying until after the race had ended. The Marines provided a 
color guard presenting the National Colors, set up and tore down 
hydration stations, and presented medals to the finishers of the races. 
They truly made a positive impact on the success of the races.

  Today, I want to recognize not only the service and sacrifices these 
brave Marines have given to our country, but their unfailing dedication 
to the betterment of the Omaha community.
