FALLEN HEROES -- (Extensions of Remarks - June 04, 2004)

SPEECH OF
HON. JACK KINGSTON
OF GEORGIA
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2004

Mr. KINGSTON. Mr. Speaker, on this day of Memorial, I rise in honor of the soldiers and airmen in my district who were killed while fighting to stamp out the tyranny of terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. They died while protecting freedom and liberty-and for the hope of democracy. Their purpose was just, and we are deeply indebted to them.
These brave soldiers were uniquely courageous-they gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country, and our Nation will forever honor them. Our thoughts and prayers are continually with their families and loved ones.

As a humble token of my appreciation, I recognize them and request that their names be submitted to the CONGRESSIONAL RECORD to demonstrate our permanent gratitude:
