  Mr. CARTER of Texas. Madam Speaker, I applaud the generosity of 
Gordon Logan, an exceptional Texan who has been selected to receive the 
HillVets' Foundation ``Philanthropist of the Year Award.'' His 
commitment to veterans is second to none and he is a deserving 
recipient of this prestigious honor.
  Gordon has made support for veterans central to his personal, 
professional and philanthropic life for the past 25 years. Following 
his service in the U.S. Air Force, Gordon founded Sport Clips Haircuts 
and has committed his growing company to putting veterans first. Sport 
Clips currently has 45 veteran franchise owners and offers a 20% 
discount to veterans looking to join the brand. The company sponsors 
the Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation, which provides dream flights in 
Boeing Stearman biplanes for seniors and veterans living in long-term 
care facilities and has given more than 3,500 dream flights. Gordon's 
Sport Clips also sponsors veteran-centered organizations such as the 
Aleethia Foundation, Gratitude Initiative, Honor Flight Austin, R.O.C.K 
veteran program and Rosie's List in San Diego.
  In addition to being a past president and current member of the 
VetFran Committee, Gordon also serves on the VFW Foundation Board, 
which directs the funds donated to the VFW for active duty 
servicemembers and veterans, and on the advisory board for USO Fort 
Hood. The VFW's Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship program has 
provided some 1,300 scholarships totaling $5.5 million to service men 
and women and veterans pursuing their education and training goals. 
Gordon's commitment to investing his abilities to support our veterans 
is a deeply held creed that speaks to the generous activism of true and 
devoted public servant.
  Gordon Logan is one of our nation's stalwart champion for veterans. I 
am honored to represent him in Congress, as his efforts represents 
Texas values at their very best. I proudly stand alongside those who 
salute his work on behalf of our nation's heroes.
