  (Mr. CARTER of Georgia asked and was given permission to address the 
House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. CARTER of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the 
75th Ranger Regiment for their role in the historic elimination of ISIS 
leader al-Baghdadi.
  On Saturday, October 26, the 75th Ranger Regiment, along with other 
Army Special Forces, flawlessly executed an operation that led to the 
removal of one of the world's most dangerous terrorists.
  This operation is a moment of pride for all Americans because of the 
atrocities he and his group have committed against innocent men, women, 
and children. It is an especially proudful moment for Georgia, in the 
First Congressional District that I have the honor and privilege of 
representing, because of the reported role of the 75th Ranger Regiment.
  Mr. Speaker, while the 75th Ranger Regiment is headquartered at Fort 
Benning, I am proud to represent one part of it through the 1st Ranger 
Battalion, stationed at Savannah's Hunter Army Airfield.
  I thank all of those in the 75th Ranger Regiment for their service to 
our Nation and for their bravery.
  While details will be restricted, I am proud of the regiment's 
continued role
