  Mr. BERGMAN. Mr. Speaker, it's my honor to recognize Lieutenant 
Colonel Dennis Sugrue for his service as Commander at the U.S. Army 
Corps of Engineers, Detroit District. Through his exceptional 
leadership and steadfast devotion, LTC Sugrue has become an 
indispensable part of the state of Michigan.
  LTC Sugrue first assumed command at the Detroit District in July of 
2016. Under his leadership, the Corps has worked to ensure 
environmental stability and engineering excellence in the 
infrastructure of the Great Lakes Region. From dredging waterways and 
mitigating the threat of natural disasters to preserving and improving 
the Soo Locks, the work of LTC Sugrue and the Army Corps has been 
critical to protecting the Great Lakes and promoting the livelihoods of 
Michiganders and Americans everywhere.
  Prior to his work in Michigan, LTC Sugrue served as the Deputy 
District Commander of the Corps' Los Angeles District. His service also 
included work in Germany, New York, two tours in Afghanistan, and one 
in Kosovo. He is a 1999 graduate of the United States Military Academy 
at West Point where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil 
Engineering, and holds two Master of Science degrees from Missouri 
Science and Technology and The Johns Hopkins University. He is a 
recipient of the Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal, Army 
Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, and several other 
prestigious awards recognizing his extraordinary service. Lieutenant 
Colonel Sugrue will be officially relieved by LTC Gregory E. Turner on 
July 26th at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial.
  Mr. Speaker, it's my honor to recognize Lieutenant Colonel Dennis 
Sugrue for his service to the people of Michigan with the U.S. Army 
Corps of Engineers. On behalf of my constituents, I wish LTC Sugrue all 
the best in his future endeavors.
