                     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.
