  Mr. QUIGLEY. Madam Speaker, I rise to honor the World War II, Korean 
War, and Vietnam War veterans who traveled to Washington, D.C. on July

II, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans the opportunity to visit their 
memorials on The National Mall in Washington, D.C.

[[Page E914]]

These memorials were built to honor their courage and service to their 
country.
  The American Veteran is one of our greatest treasures. The Soldiers, 
Airmen, Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen who traveled here on July 
10th answered our nation's call to service during several of its 
greatest times of need. Across the world, these brave Americans risked 
life and limb, gave service and sacrificed much, all while embodying 
what it is to be a hero. We owe them more gratitude than can ever be 
expressed.
  I welcome these brave veterans to Washington and to their memorials. 
I am proud to include in the Record the names of these men and women 
for all to see, hear, and recognize, and I call on my colleagues to 
rise and join me in expressing gratitude:
