   CELEBRATING THE LIFE AND MILITARY LEGACY OF MORTON ``SHEA'' LANDY

  (Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Madam Speaker, I rise today to 
celebrate the life and the incredible military legacy of Morton 
``Shea'' Landy.
  Morton passed away on November 25 at the age of 90 in Curwensville, 
Pennsylvania.
  Morton was a longtime resident of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, 
although his military service took him across the world throughout his 
career.
  After enlisting in the Marine Corps in 1946, Morton would go on to 
serve in Japan shortly after World War II, in the Caribbean during the 
Cuban Missile Crisis, and in Vietnam during the height of the Vietnam 
war, to name a few.
  After 32 years of faithfully serving our Nation both domestically and 
abroad, Morton retired from the Marine Corps. He would finish his 
military career with not only the highest enlisted rank possible, but 
as the second highest sergeant major in the Marines.
  Even still, Morton's service did not stop there. In retirement, he 
spent much of his time volunteering on behalf of the Clearfield County 
Historical Society, his local VFW, and the Marine Corps League.
  The passing of Morton Landy is a profound loss, and I offer my 
sincerest condolences to Morton's family and to those who were forever 
touched by his commitment to service.
