                       CONGRATULATING MOLLY FREY


                           HON. STEVE STIVERS

                                of ohio

                    in the house of representatives

                         Thursday, May 23, 2013

  Mr. STIVERS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Molly Frey on 
her achievement as a Military Kid of the Year from ``Our Military 
Kids.'' I am honored that one of my very own constituents has been 
selected for this prestigious award.
  According to ``Our Military Kids,'' Molly was selected for the award 
because of her talents in ballet, figure skating, and sailing. She also 
has a philanthropic spirit, which has led to her helping raise money 
for breast cancer awareness and volunteering to support other military 
families through ``Operation Baking GALS'' (Give a Little Support).
  Molly's father, Ohio Air Reserve Guard Senior Master Sgt. Kim Frey, 
was away on a seven-month deployment, which included six months in 
Afghanistan. As a Colonel in the Ohio Army National Guard and veteran 
of Operation Iraqi Freedom, I am impressed with the sacrifices that 
Molly and her family have made for our country and our freedom. Their 
family knows all too well that these sacrifices are shared, and I 
admire their strength to persevere.
  Again, I offer my congratulations to Molly Frey. It was an honor to 
meet her and her family in April when she was in Washington, DC I ask 
that all Members of Congress rise and join me in recognizing the 
sacrifices that all military families and personnel make for this great 
nation, including Molly Frey and her family.
