[Page S6564] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] RECOGNIZING A & J AUTO REPAIR
Mr. RISCH. Mr. President, as a member and former chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, each month I recognize and celebrate the American entrepreneurial spirit by highlighting the success of a small business in my home State of Idaho. However, in honor of Veterans Day on November 11, this month I will honor a veteran-owned small business for each of the 10 days the Senate is in legislative session. The personal sacrifices made by America's veterans have protected the very freedoms and values that give each of us and our children the ability to achieve the American dream. The skills veterans learn as members of the military are invaluable and undoubtedly contribute to Idaho's flourishing veteran business community. I am proud of the sacrifices veterans have made to protect our country and that they are choosing Idaho to call home when they complete their service in the military. As your U.S. Senator from the great State of Idaho, it is my pleasure to recognize A & J Auto Repair in Twin Falls as the veteran-owned Idaho Small Business of the Day for November 13, 2019. A & J Auto Repair is owned and operated by Charles ``Abe'' Abrahamson, who served in the United States Marine Corps, and his wife Robin. Abe is an active member of the American Legion and was recently recognized as the 2019 American Legion National Recruiter of the Year for his work recruiting more than 700 new members in 2018. In 2013, the Abrahamsons opened A & J Auto Repair to provide automotive maintenance and repair services to the Magic Valley. Factory trained and certified technicians at A & J Auto Repair service all makes and models of cars, trucks, and sports utility vehicles. Abe Abrahamson is certified to service Volkswagen and Audi vehicles. The company prides itself in providing customers with accurate and timely repairs. A & J Auto Repair technicians and staff work hard to provide exceptional, personalized services at affordable prices. Congratulations to Abe and Robin Abrahamson and all of the employees at A & J Auto Repair for being selected as the veteran-owned Idaho Small Business of the Day for November 13, 2019. You make our great State proud, and I look forward to your continued growth and success. ____________________
