  Mr. BRALEY of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, today, I am here to honor and 
celebrate the life of an American patriot, 2nd Lieutenant Marion B. 
Gaultier.
  Marion was born in May of 1923, in Fremont, Nebraska, but was raised 
in Vinton, Iowa, graduating from Vinton High School. She graduated from 
the School of Nursing at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines in 1944 at which 
point she was commissioned as an officer into the U.S. Army.
  Marion was discharged from service in 1946, then went on to work for 
the VA hospital in Menlo Park, California. She met her husband, fellow 
veteran John Gaultier at the hospital she was employed at. They married 
in 1970 and moved to Vinton that same year.
  Marion dedicated her life to helping others. She hosted blind 
children in her home. She was the Chair of the annual Easter Seals 
fundraiser at the American Legion, and cared for her ailing parents in 
their later years. AMVETS recognizes her passion for helping others by 
bestowing her name on the Post. It will now and forever be known as the 
``Marion B. Gaultier-Phillis M. Kulaszewski AMVET Post 218 Benton 
County, Iowa.''
