                          HON. WALTER B. JONES

                           of north carolina

                    in the house of representatives

  Mr. JONES. Mr. Speaker, Brigadier General Steven Rudder is a man for 
whom I have great respect. During his time in Washington serving the 
Commandant of the United States Marine Corps, I have gotten to know 
BGen Rudder in his efforts to work with me to clear the names of two 
Marine pilots who were killed in a V22 crash.
  Because of this issue, I have had many opportunities to meet with 
BGen Rudder over the past two years and have found him to be a man of 
great integrity and reason. He is a man who does all he can to help 
someone else.
  He has served as a knowledgeable advisor to me and my staff and I 
believe our country is better protected because of leaders like him.
  I will always be grateful for BGen Rudder's assistance and I wish him 
and his family all the best in their move to Japan. I know he will 
continue to serve our country with honor.
  May God continue to bless the Rudder family, our men and women in 
uniform, and the United States of America.
