TRIBUTE TO COLONEL JOAL E. WOLF -- (Extensions of Remarks - July 22, 2004)

SPEECH OF
HON. ROBERT E. ANDREWS
OF NEW JERSEY
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
THURSDAY, JULY 22, 2004

Mr. ANDREWS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Joal E. Wolf. Lieutenant
Colonel Wolf distinguished himself as the Commander of the 3401st Military Intelligence Detachment and Chief of
Staff of the Iraq Intelligence Task Force and Iraq Working Group of the Joint Staff at the Defense Intelligence Agency
from April 2001 to May 2004. Lieutenant Colonel Wolf led daily operations in providing cutting-edge and time-critical
assessments and trend analysis on military activity in and around the Iraqi theater in support of Operation Iraqi
Freedom. Lieutenant Colonel Wolf's leadership ensured over 4,000 tasks were completed efficiently and delivered
timely to senior military and civilian leaders in the Department of Defense, White House and Congress. These
intelligence products contributed significantly to the shaping of our national security policy and military planning,
especially in the areas of infrastructure, economics, war crimes, sensitive site exploitation, anti-Coalition militants,
weapons of mass destruction, and Coalition force protection. Lieutenant Colonel Wolf led his detachment to eclipse a
bold 200 percent increase in production and in creating the Iraqi "55 Most-Wanted" deck of cards. For his service,
Lieutenant Colonel Wolf was awarded the Defense Meritorious Service Medal on May 28, 2004.

In addition to being a fine military officer, Joal is also my brother-in-law and a small business owner. Joal is the proud
son of Mrs. Phyllis M. Wolf, a veteran of the United States Army, and the late Dr. Alan E. Wolf, who was also a
veteran of the United States Army. My relation to Joal has allowed me to closely follow his selfless service and better
understand the sacrifices that thousands of reservists and Guardsmen are making in the war against terrorism. I am
personally grateful to Joal and all of the brave men and women in our military who are making tremendous sacrifices to
serve our Nation during this difficult time.
