Tribute To Col. Pete Hilgartner June 19, 2015
Barbara Comstock, R-VA
"In Vietnam, he commanded the 1st Battalion, Fifth Marine Regiment, the most decorated combat battalion in the U.S. Marine Corp. His tour as Battalion Commander of a frontline Marine Infantry Battalion was one of the longest of any during the war and his battalion fought in numerous actions, including every major action that occurred in the 1st Marine Division sector from November 1966 to September 1967. His six and a half foot stature earned him the name “Highpockets” by his Marines, who loved him for his competency and his concern for his men’s welfare. Under his command, his unit received two Presidential Unit Citations, for Operations Union, Union II, and Swift. Col. Hilgartner himself was awarded twice the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Palm, the Legion of Merit, and the Silver Star medal, for gallantry in combat during Operation Swift."

2015 Major Norman Hatch Award Winner, Bob Zimmerman June 1, 2015
John Shimkus, R-IL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to acknowledge the 2015 Major Norman Hatch Award being awarded to filmmaker Bob Zimmerman of Tuscola, Illinois. On April 25, 2015, the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation presented this award to Zimmerman during a special ceremony at the National Museum of the Marine Corps. These annual awards go to Marines and civilians from across the nation to recognize their work in preserving Marine Corps history. Zimmerman received the Feature Documentary award for his work, Rise of the Valiant. Zimmerman’s documentary is the story of veterans from the 6th Marine Division, starting with their enlistment through their return home during World War II. The documentary combines interviews, war footage, and photographs to mainly focus on the 82-day Battle of Okinawa that claimed 250,000 lives. Footage and photographs from the National Archives, the Marine Corps History Division, the National Museum of the Pacific War, and personal collections, combined with historical commentary from Bill Sloan bestir this extraordinary work. I would like to extend my congratulations to Bob Zimmerman on his distinguished accomplishment."
