    YOUNG of iowa in the house of representatives Tuesday, January 12, 2016 Mr. YOUNG of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Violet Antisdel on the celebration of her 102nd birthday. Violet celebrated her birthday on December 24, 2015 in Creston, Iowa.

    Our world has changed a great deal during the course of Violet's life. Since her birth, we have revolutionized air travel and walked on the moon. We have invented the television, cellular phones, and the internet. We have fought in wars overseas, seen the rise and fall of Soviet communism, and witnessed the birth of new democracies. Violet has lived through seventeen United States Presidents and twenty-one Governors of Iowa. In her lifetime, the population of the United States has more than tripled.

    Mr. Speaker, it is an honor to represent Violet in the United States Congress and it is my pleasure to wish her a very happy 102nd birthday. I ask that my colleagues in the United States House of Representatives join me in congratulating Violet for reaching this incredible milestone and in wishing her nothing but the best.
