                    in the house of representatives

                         Thursday, May 23, 2013

  Mr. SCHNEIDER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to the 
outstanding community service of the Rotary Club of North Chicago and 
to recognize this year's recipients of their Humanitarian Patriot 
Award.
   Each year the Rotary Club in North Chicago, home of Naval Station 
Great Lakes, recognizes their Humanitarian Patriot honorees for their 
service to veterans. This year's recipients have all demonstrated an 
incredible sense of commitment to the men and women of our armed 
forces. They understand that veterans have sacrificed greatly for this 
country and deserve nothing but our highest gratitude and respect.
   The Rotary Club was founded on the principle of service, and the 
Humanitarian Patriot Award is an inspiring extension of that original 
mission.
   It is entirely fitting that this year's ceremony will be held at the 
Lovell Federal Health Care Center--an institution dedicated to caring 
for the brave members of our armed forces, veterans and their families.
   Mr. Speaker, I congratulate this year's recipients: Alan Belcher; 
Ken Duffy; Patricia Jones; Alain H. Oller, Donna E. King; Tom Marks; 
John Mroczka; the Navy League of the United States, Lake County 
Council; Paula Caraballido; William R. Beiersdorf; Gregory Padovani; 
Eli Williamson; Thomas Zengeler; and Jim Dolan.
   But much more than that, I thank them for the incredible work they 
have done. Their service strengthens our communities, and I am grateful 
for the work of the Rotary Club of North Chicago and all of this year's 
honorees.

                          ____________________
