Mr. President, we have a very special guest here today from the big town of Ida in Monroe County, a veteran of the U.S. Army, Sam Struth.

 

Senator Moss statement is as follows:

Mr. President, I also wanted to introduce my guest in the Gallery who joined us for the very meaningful Memorial Day program earlier, my long-time friend Barbara Seldon. Barbara Seldon entered active duty in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1964, took advantage of the G.I. Bill and entered college at the University of Detroit where she received her associate痴 degree in dental hygiene, bachelor痴 degree and master痴 degree, and was immediately hired by the University of Detroit School of Dentistry, retiring in 2005 having been associate professor, assistant to the dean for special projects, and director of minority recruitment in the Department of Periodontology, Division of Dental Hygiene. She痴 currently a member of the Southfield Veterans Commission and her three-year tour of duty taught her strong discipline, respect for authority, and the importance of being something greater than oneself, and it helped mold and influence her work ethic. After college, she joined the Wolverine Chapter 67, Womens Army Corps Veterans Association and became a member of the National Honor Guard and became captain of the National Honor Guard. She is very active in our community and I知 so appreciative of her friendship and the friendship of her husband, Lieutenant Colonel Felix Selden, both of whom live in Southfield. I wanted to introduce my friend Barbara to the Senate today.

Senator Bullock痴 statement is as follows:

I, too, would like to recognize my guest in the Gallery, Mr. Barry Wood from Hastings, Michigan, who serves here as the State Commander for the American Legion, has over 22 years of service. He served six years in the Navy and then he got a little seasick and he went and enlisted in the Army for 16 years where he retired as a Chief Warrant Officer of military intelligence and it was just great sitting with him and getting to chat with him today at the wonderful service.

 

Senator Ananich痴 statement is as follows:

I was fortunate to have a good friend of mine join me today, Arthur Woodson from Flint. He brought a friend of his who is a friend of mine, Danielle Green, a school board member and it was a pleasure to have them here and thank him for his service. I don稚 know if he痴 upstairs or not, but I wanted to acknowledge him.

But I also wanted to take a moment. I just realized this was my ninth Memorial Day service at the Michigan Senate. I think I can say this without a doubt擁t was my most favorite and I think really the most moving ceremony I致e been to. And I just wanted to take a moment and thank the Senator from the 10th District for taking on this and all the veterans here and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle who have served. It痴 a lot of work, Mike, and you do it on behalf of all of us and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you. You did a really good job and your staff and everyone. It was a beautiful ceremony and I was proud to be a part of it. So thank you.

 

Senator Horn痴 statement is as follows:

I was just informed that my guest has entered the Gallery. He痴 in the west Gallery, Master Sergeant Alonzo Gillette from Fenton. It was such a pleasure to host him and some of the family today.

Thank you for a beautiful event, and I do want to recognize our leaders柚ajority Leader Mike Shirkey and Minority Leader Jim Ananich庸or the role they played in protecting the American and Michigan flags today. I think that was such a charming act that they did, sitting on the steps holding those flags to protect the flags from the wind. Thank you both, and thank you, Mr. President.

 

Senator Santana痴 statement is as follows:

I would also like to take the liberty to acknowledge my two guests today as well, Sergeant Nathan A. Lincoln and Staff Sergeant Devin Smith who are Army National Guard recruiters here in the state of Michigan.

 

Senator Shirkey痴 statement is as follows:

At the end of this last month we all got to enjoy a little bit of time off. Time to be with our families, enjoy the outdoors, slow down a little bit, and reflect upon all the fortunes this country provides. But most of all, remember those who gave their lives in service to this country so we might continue to enjoy the great privileges the United States of America provides. And even more important than that, is to pass down that tradition to our children, our grandchildren, and beyond. Our nation is not perfect, but she is exceptional. We must follow the model of our military men and women and in our own ways find a way to serve this great country that has given to us through God痴 providence.

Here at the Michigan Legislature we take time to mark Memorial Day in our own way here in the Senate. Each of us has brought with us distinguished guests who have answered the call of liberty and given their commitment of their lives in the service of our nation. With me today I知 glad to introduce to this chamber Jeffery 笛eff Francis, a Vietnam veteran who served in the 25th Infantry Division as an infantryman. He received some of the military痴 highest awards. He was awarded the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star, an Army Commendation Medal with a 天 device for valor, and the Air Medal. After interviewing Jeff for a couple of hours over lunch recently he made it clear to me that he left eight of his nine lives in Vietnam. Thank you, Jeff, for your service and I would like my colleagues here to recognize Jeff Francis with me right now.

I also want to be sure to name a dear friend of mine, George Armstrong, who also served in Vietnam. George was a newlywed when he was drafted into the service in 1966 until his honorable discharge in 1968. He could not be with us here today. He is watching because he is suffering from Agent Orange in a home and has been for a couple of years. George, we池e sorry you池e not here today but we honor you as well.

Michigan has a proud and distinct history of service to our country. Among us are well over a half-a-million people who have signed up to ultimately sign that blank check, a reminder of how many Americans it takes to keep our country safe and free. I also want to remember those who are no longer with us, as we identified in today痴 ceremony, especially those who have been lost in the theatre of war.

And may we all remember that to continue to build upon our great nation, not tear it down, is the highest form of gratitude that we can embrace to give to those who gave it all.

 

A moment of silence was observed in memory of U.S. military personnel who have died in the performance of their military duties.

Senator Stamas statement is as follows:

I just wanted to take a moment, I see we have several other veterans who have joined us in the Gallery who have not yet been recognized and I壇 ask that we just recognize any of those who have not had remarks given.
