Entry Title Date
Honoring Lt. Col. Matt Urban August 1, 2014
John Dingell, D-MI
"Lt. Col. Urban is one of the most decorated soldiers of our time. He has received the Medal of Honor, Silver Star, Legion of Merit and the Purple Heart, among others. After enlisting in the Army on July 2, 1941, Lt. Col. Urban fought in six campaigns in World War II in the Mediterranean and European theaters. On September 3, 1944, after exposing himself to enemy fire while destroying two tanks with a bazooka, he was critically wounded and medically evacuated from battle. The following year, a fellow soldier recommended him for the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions in battle. Unfortunately, this letter was not received by the Army, which resulted in a great delay in recognizing his valor. However, thanks to hard work by his family, friends and supporters, Lt. Col Urban was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Jimmy Carter on July 19, 1980. He passed away on March 4, "
Bills Languishing In The Senate July 24, 2014
Marsha Blackburn, R-TN
"That is exactly right. And it is about making certain that we get our labor force participation back up in this country. We have the lowest labor force participation rate we have had since the misery index days of Jimmy Carter’s Presidency. We would love to see more individuals back into the workforce."
Honoring Our Armed Forces July 22, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Jason was born September 12, 1984, to Jimmy and Delores “Darby” McCluskey in Stockton, CA, and later moved to McAlester, OK. As a wrestler at McAlester High School he went to the State championship tournament several times before graduating in 2004. Quoting James Dean in his senior quote, he wrote: “Dream as if you will live forever. And live as if you will die today.”"
Nomination Of John W. Degravelles To Be United States District Judge For The Middle District Of Louisiana July 22, 2014
John Thune, R-SD
"Our current labor force participation rate is at lows we have not seen since the 1970s during the Presidency of Jimmy Carter. In fact, if the labor participation rate were today what it was when the President took office, the unemployment rate would not be a little over 6 percent, it would be 10.2 percent. That is how many people have entirely quit looking for work."
Remembering Mattie Stepanek July 17, 2014
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"Mattie believed that wishes can come true. He had three. The first was to talk peace with Jimmy Carter. They spoke several times through email correspondence. His second was to have his poems published in a book. He wrote the most successful volumes of poetry in the last 30 years and became a seven-time New York Times bestselling author. His last was to see his poetry read on Oprah. He appeared on Oprah’s show several times and became her good friend."
