Recognizing The Dedicated Service Of Mr. John Moran March 4, 2014
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize a special individual whose contributions to this country, especially its veterans, are innumerable. His name is John Moran, and he has just retired from Federal service as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Veterans’ Employment and Training Service. Last week, John closed out a career that has spanned 35 years of dedicated service to his country. His accomplishments in that time are remarkable. In fact, John began his career protecting the public and Members of the House and Senate as a United States Capitol Policeman. John was born and raised in Worcester, Massachusetts. In 1979, he graduated from Westfield State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. As I stated earlier, he began his Federal career as a member of the United States Capitol Police, then, later as a Federal Air Marshal/Special Agent with the FAA. Throughout his 35 year career, Mr. Moran progressed through a variety of managerial and senior executive positions: Special Agent in Charge, Washington, D.C. Civil Aviation Security Field Office; Chief of Staff, FAA Office of Airports; Program Assessment and Evaluation Officer, in the Office of Civil Aviation Security; Director, of the Red Team and Explosives Security Division, at the Office of Civil Aviation Security. Following the attacks on September 11th, Mr. Moran played a crucial role in helping to shape the legislation that founded the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and was instrumental in building it from the ground up. For his hard work and dedication, Mr. Moran received a September 11th Service Medal from the Secretary of Transportation in recognition of his pivotal role and unwavering service to his country. He then became the TSA Assistant Administrator responsible for all aspects of training of a workforce of over 50,000 personnel and served as Vice Chair of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation Board. In 2005, Mr. Moran was asked to serve as the acting Associate Administrator. Mr. Moran’s final Federal service was as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Veterans Employment and Training Service or VETS at the Department of Labor. In this position, Mr. Moran was the go-to executive during a leadership transition in which he was responsible for important veterans employment programs such as the Jobs for Veterans State Grant program, the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program, the Women’s Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program, the Incarcerated Veterans Program, the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program, and the Transition Assistance Program. Literally thousands of veterans are now employed because of John Moran’s dedication to the betterment of those who have worn the nation’s military uniforms. On behalf of the House Committee on Veterans’ affairs, I wish John and his family every success in the future."
The Service Of Mr. Jacob Gillison February 14, 2014
John Lewis, D-GA
"I first met Jacob many years ago when he was a member of the United States‘ Air Force (USAF) Air Traffic Control Field. During his nearly two decades of service in the U.S. Air Force, Jacob was recognized repeatedly for his dedication and commitment to excellence. When I learned that he was considering a transition to a different branch of government, I was pleased to invite him to join my Washington, DC staff as scheduler and office manager. If he was able to keep military planes safe and on-time, I believed he might be able to keep me and my staff on schedule."
In Honoring The Life Of Rear Admiral Joseph Coleman, Usn (Ret.) January 31, 2014
Ander Crenshaw, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the service and life of Rear Admiral Joseph Coleman, USN (Ret.), who was a voice of vision and action in our Jacksonville community for decades. Joe spent 32 years that spanned two wars defending our country as a member of the United States Navy. But, Joe’s commitment to his country did not end with retirement. Joe reassigned his leadership skills to make the City of Jacksonville a better place to live not only for retired and active duty military but for all its citizens."
