  Mr. DAINES. Mr. Speaker, Military Appreciation Day is an important 
reminder for all Americans of the importance of thanking and honoring 
the men and women who have served our nation in the armed forces.
  I want to especially recognize Marine Lance Cpl. Thomas Parker of 
Ronan, Montana. Lance Cpl. Parker served in the 3rd Battalion, 5th 
Marines, and on December 11, 2010 he lost both of his legs and much of 
his left hand from an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan's 
Helmand Province.
  After months of surgeries and rehabilitation, Lance Cpl. Parker 
returned home to Montana, and I'm proud to have him joining us for 
Military Appreciation Day in Helena. His strength, perseverance, and 
selfless service has made Montana proud and is worthy of our deepest 
appreciation.
  I'm proud to honor Montana's veterans and service members on Military 
Appreciation Day, but may we always remember to thank these selfless 
Americans each and every day for their service to our country and the 
sacrifices they have made to protect our nation's security and our 
freedom.
