                         Friday, June 14, 2013

  Mr. RYAN of Ohio. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the career of an 
exemplary public servant, Roy Apseloff. After 32 years of service, Mr. 
Apseloff will be retiring from the Defense Intelligence Agency.
   Mr. Apseloff is a native of Kent, Ohio and earned his Bachelor of 
Arts in Psychology from Cornell University. He continued his education 
earning a Master of Arts in International Relations from Catholic 
University and a Master of Science in National Security Strategy from 
the National War College. He began his career with the Defense 
Intelligence Agency in 1981 as a U.S. Navy Officer assigned to the 
Directorate for Collection. Mr. Apseloff transitioned to civilian 
service in 1985 and since then he has held a series of positions of 
increasing responsibility within human intelligence and collection 
   Mr. Apseloff will be retiring from the Defense Intelligence Agency 
as the Vice President for Information Management and Deputy CIO; he 
also serves as the Deputy Chief of a Global Information Technology 
organization of over 3,000 people and $1 billion that provides IT 
support to 20,000 customers worldwide. In addition, Mr. Apseloff serves 
on various senior interagency boards and forums. Despite leaving for 
civilian service in 1985, Mr. Apseloff continued to serve in the U.S. 
Navy Reserve until his retirement in 2003 with the rank of captain. His 
many reserve assignments included: Operations Officer, Executive 
Officer and Commanding Officer. His longtime service in the U.S. Navy 
is yet another testament to his long career of service to his country.
   Mr. Apseloff's exemplary work ethic has been recognized by the many 
awards and distinctions he has received in his 32 years with the 
Defense Intelligence Agency. He has received the Presidential Rank 
Award of Distinguished Executive, the Presidential Rank Award of 
Meritorious Executive, the DIA Director's Award for Exceptional 
Civilian Service, and the Defense Intelligence Director's Award.
   I want to extend my warm and sincere thanks to Roy Apseloff for his 
life's devotion to serving his country. His long and illustrious career 
with the United States Navy and The Defense Intelligence Agency will 
not be forgotten. I would like to wish him congratulations on all he 
has accomplished and all the best in his well-deserved retirement.
