                       Wednesday, April 17, 2013

  Mr. FINCHER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the retirement of 
Lieutenant Colonel Steven M. Dotson. Lt. Col. Dotson will be retiring 
from active duty service in the United States Marine Corps after almost 
28 years on September 30, 2013.
   Lt. Col. Dotson's roots are in the Eighth District of Tennessee, as 
he was raised in the town of Sharon. He enlisted in the Marines on 
October 5th, 1985, in Union City, Tennessee. Currently, Lt. Col. Dotson 
serves as a Strategic Mobility Officer for the Marine Corps 
Installations & Logistics Department.
   Lt. Col. Dotson proudly represents the United States, and I am proud 
to represent him as a Member of Congress. As we reflect on the career 
of this exemplary public servant, I express appreciation for his 
distinguished and selfless service on behalf of a grateful nation. It 
is his sacrifice, along with the sacrifices of those in uniform around 
the world, which helps to keep our Nation strong and secure.
