Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Recognizing Mr. John Cook November 19, 2015
Pat Meehan, R-PA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to pay tribute to John Cook, a Marine from Delaware County, Pennsylvania. John joined the Corps fresh out of high school, and served under Col. Lewis “Chesty” Puller. John landed with the Marines at Incheon and served in “Massacre Valley” during Operation Killer in February 1951. He was discharged in 1952 as a Sergeant, having served his country with honor and distinction. John will be honored with the Freedom Medal tonight at the Delaware County Veterans Memorial Association Annual Dinner. It’s a fitting honor for a man who served his country ably in Korea."
The People’S Night November 18, 2015
Mark Walker, R-NC
"Politico, back in February, published this prediction: “Though Obama’s three vetoes are thus far a record low…experts expect Obama’s final 2 years to be packed with high-profile veto showdowns.”"
Every Child Achieves Act Of 2015 November 18, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"As the Presiding Officer heard from our chairman, Senator Alexander, since February of this year, he and I have worked together on a bipartisan education bill that would remove the harmful one-size-fits-all mandates of No Child Left Behind, while also including Federal guardrails to make sure all of our students have access to a quality education."
Albert M. Woolley November 17, 2015
Lee Zeldin, R-NY
"Staff Sergeant Albert M. Woolley was born on February 13, 1925, in Victoria, Texas. On November 17, 1942, at the age of 17, with his parent’s consent, and alongside his cousins and friends, he enlisted to serve in World War II."
Nominations November 17, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Senators Nelson and Rubio jointly signed and recommended that she become a judge in the Southern District of Florida. She was nominated on February 26, 2015—8 months ago—but since then the junior Senator from Florida is running for President. He doesn’t have time to mess with a judicial emergency. The Miami-based seat is considered another judicial emergency. It has been without a Senate-confirmed judge for more than a year."
