[Extensions of Remarks] [Pages E568-E569] COMMEMORATING THE LIFE OF CALIFORNIA'S LUPE C. HERRERA ______ HON. GLORIA NEGRETE McLEOD of california in the house of representatives Friday, April 26, 2013 Mrs. NEGRETE McLEOD. Mr. Speaker, let us commemorate the life of Lupe C. Herrera, a devoted member of the United States Army, who passed away on April 22 in Ontario, California at the age of 94. Mr. Herrera enlisted in the Army on December 2, 1941, just a few days before the attack [[Page E569]] on Pearl Harbor. Mr. Herrera faithfully served his country for much of the remainder of WWII in the Sixth Armored Division throughout Europe until January 1946. Mr. Herrera maintained an active role in his community throughout his life. His family remembers the stories he recounted about his memories during his service passing on his love for his country. The love for his country was transmitted to his grandchildren, as one serves in the Marines and another one in the Air Force. Mr. Herrera is survived by his wife, 6 children, 13 grandchildren, and 11 great- grandchildren. Mr. Speaker, Mr. Herrera was an exceptionally devoted husband and father and I know that he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Mr. Herrera's story will live on to serve as an inspiration for generations to come, and I thank him for his dedication to our nation. ____________________
