  THANKING EMPLOYEES OF THE OFFICE OF THE SERGEANT AT ARMS FOR THEIR 
                          SERVICE TO THE HOUSE

                                 ______
                                 

                         HON. CANDICE S. MILLER

                              of MICHIGAN

                    in the house of representatives

                      Wednesday, November 20, 2013

  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, I rise today on behalf of the 
House of Representatives to pay tribute to eight outstanding and long-
term employees of the Office of the Sergeant at Arms who will be 
retiring in the upcoming months:
  John Boardman--Chamber Security Division staff.
  Geraldine Cassidy--House Garages and Parking Security Division Staff.
  Dennis Engel--House Garages and Parking Security Division Staff.
  Karen Forriest--Identification Services Division staff.
  Nicarsia Mayes--Chamber Security Division staff.
  Linda Shealy--Emergency Management Division, Executive Assistant.
  Bill Sims--Director of Chamber Security.
  Lee Trolan--Emergency Management Division, Director, Continuity 
Planning.
  Taken as a group, these exceptional public servants have served the 
House of Representatives and the federal government for a combined 
total of 242 years. I know we are deeply grateful to each of them for 
their many years of hard work, diligence, and sacrifice to this 
institution.
  Taken individually, each has held positions of trust and 
responsibility within the Office of the Sergeant at Arms. From the 
Floor of the House, to the House Office Building garages, to the 
Identification Office, and Emergency Planning, their commitment to the 
Congress is second to none. Their institutional knowledge and skills, 
honed through years of hard work and dedication, will be sorely missed 
by their colleagues, as well as by Members and staff alike. Every 
single one of them has much to be proud of as they reflect on long and 
distinguished careers.
  Please join me in commending the outstanding service of John 
Boardman, Geraldine Cassidy, Dennis Engel, Karen Forriest, Nicarsia 
Mayes, Linda Shealy, Bill Sims, and Lee Trolan to the Congress of the 
United States and congratulating each on their retirement. On behalf of 
the U.S. House of Representatives we wish each of you well in all of 
your future endeavors.
