  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

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.
