  Mr. ANDREWS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the achievements of 
Mr. Edwin Falter. Mr. Falter is a man who has dedicated 33 years of his

engineer. He began working in the Philadelphia Naval Yard on June 9th, 
1980. During his time there, he worked on power generation and 
electrical power equipment. In 1991, Mr. Falter began working at the 
Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) in Moorestown, NJ. He

evaluation of the contractors' efforts and development of the AEGIS

Technical Representative. There he continued his work on the AEGIS 
combat system, designing and implementing Command & Control, AEGIS 
Display Systems, Mission Planner, and AEGIS Computing Infrastructure. 
His efforts improved the performance of cruisers and destroyers in the 
US Navy, saving lives and enabling American sailors to do their jobs 
more effectively. Mr. Falter's service to his country and technical 
skill as an engineer are traits to be commended. During his years 
working for the US Navy, Mr. Falter contributed to countless projects 
that have gone on to protect American lives.
  Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the people of the First District of New 
Jersey, I want to thank Mr. Edwin Falter for his years of dedicated 
service. I stand with the people of New Jersey and the nation in 
applauding Mr. Falter for his work.
