                             HON. TOM REED

  Mr. REED. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the life and service 
of Brigadier General Harold H. Dunwoody, who passed away last month at 
the age of 96.
  General Dunwoody was a longtime resident of Randolph, New York. He 
graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1943 
and served in the U.S. Army for 31 years. During his distinguished 
career, he fought in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. 
In recognition of his exemplary service to our country, General 
Dunwoody was awarded numerous medals and commendations, including the 
Purple Heart, Silver Star, and Distinguished Service Cross.
  General Dunwoody hails from a family that has proudly served our 
country for generations. From the Revolutionary War to the wars in Iraq 
and Afghanistan, the Dunwoody family has fought to preserve our freedom 
in virtually every armed conflict in our nation's history. This 
commitment to service was carried on by Mr. Dunwoody's children: his 
daughter Ann Dunwoody became the first woman to achieve the rank of 
four-star general in the United States military; his daughter Susan 
Schoeck became a helicopter pilot in the Army; his son Harold Dunwoody, 
Jr. graduated from West Point and achieved the rank of first lieutenant 
in the Army.
  General Dunwoody dedicated his life to serving our country. He leaves 
behind a proud legacy of military service, which will have a positive 
impact for generations to come. I ask all of my colleagues to join me 
in honoring and remembering the life of this great American.
