   CONGRATULATING HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS WHO HAVE ANSWERED THE CALL OF 
                      SERVICE IN OUR ARMED FORCES

                                 ______
                                 

                            HON. BILL POSEY

                               of florida

                    in the house of representatives

                         Friday, April 26, 2013

  Mr. POSEY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to express my sincere respect 
and appreciation to four high school seniors in Indian River County who 
have answered the call of service to enlist in the United States Army. 
I commend Dominick Lambino, Christopher Larson, Tomasz Cabaj, and Ryan 
Paris for their decision to protect and defend the United States of 
America.
  These young men will be recognized on May 9, 2013, in a high school 
enlistee ceremony. Soon after enlisting, they will graduate high 
school. This will mark the beginning of their valiant service to our 
country as soldiers. Many of the men and women who have served before 
them are now local and national leaders. As American citizen's 
privileged to live in liberty, these young men have learned how to 
appreciate freedom and will soon be handed the baton by the generations 
of warriors before them.
  During this time of celebration and recognition, we should all salute 
the courage within Dominick, Christopher, Tomasz, and Ryan. For each 
soldier who has served our country, there exist many citizens, myself 
included, that benefit from their hard work. Many of my most esteemed 
colleagues in Congress served as members of our Armed Forces.
  Let us not forget the challenges these soon-to-be soldiers and their 
families will face. We must not overlook the intensive training and 
challenges ahead. As a support group, mothers, fathers, siblings, and 
spouses will have to endure the challenging road ahead and act as the 
foundation where these young men can gain strength in difficult times. 
I have confidence they will accomplish all that is asked of them. The 
bottom line is that our Republic continues to thrive because of the 
call to duty these individuals and others before them have vowed to 
accept.
  The men and women who serve our country as members of our Armed 
Services go above and beyond day in and day out. I commend Dominick, 
Christopher, Tomasz, and Ryan for their service to our community and 
nation.
