                           HON. PHIL GINGREY

                               of georgia

                    in the house of representatives

                        Thursday, April 25, 2013

  Mr. GINGREY of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Chief 
Master Sergeant Peter W. Lincoln and to recognize his lifetime of 
service to our country.
   On August 1, Chief Master Sgt. Lincoln will retire after 26 years of 
sacrifice and service to this great Nation.
   While he currently serves as the National Superintendent for Officer 
Accessions at Air Force Reserve Recruiting in Georgia's Robins Air 
Force Base, he has worked in many different capacities. In 1987, 
Lincoln was first assigned to the 437th Avionics Maintenance Squadron 
in Charleston, South Carolina, and he has since been deployed to Iraq 
during Operation Desert Storm, amongst other contingencies across the 
globe. Since January of 1996, Lincoln has become a nationally 
recognized recruiter for his service in Ohio, Alabama, and Georgia.
   In his role as a recruiter for 18 years, Chief Master Sgt. Lincoln 
has recruited 6500 new airmen, which include eight hundred physicians, 
and one thousand nurses. For his efforts, he has been decorated with a 
Top Recruiter of the Year Award, a Top National Physician Recruiter 
Award, two Century Club recognitions, and three Top National Health 
Professional Recruiter Awards.
   Lincoln attributes much of his success to the support of his wife 
Kimberly, his children Robert, Lauren, Emily, Alonna, Matthew, and 
Stephanie; and his grandchildren Carley, Riley, Cheyenne, Preston, and 
Katie; his grandparents Maudie and Armond Paiser; his parents Nancy and 
Robert; and the rest of his family.
   Chief Master Sgt. Lincoln has played an invaluable role in the U.S. 
Armed Forces for decades and he will surely be missed.

   Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the 11th District of Georgia, my deepest 
thanks to Chief Master Sgt. Lincoln for devoting his life to the 
upholding the Constitution of the United States and to the protection 
of its citizens. I wish him a happy--and well-deserved--retirement.
