    MARCHANT. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in celebration of Congressman Sam Johnson's 40th anniversary of freedom. On February 12, 1973, Congressman Johnson and 590 other American POWs were released from captivity in Vietnam. With 29 years in the United States Air Force, nearly seven of those spent imprisoned, and 22 years of service in Congress, Congressman Johnson has been selflessly dedicated to the betterment our nation for more than 50 years. As we celebrate his 40 years of freedom today, we must also recognize that his half century of dedicated service has helped to preserve the freedom and prosperity of all Americans. It is a great privilege to represent Texas alongside such an inspiring patriot. I am proud to call Sam Johnson a true friend and a personal hero.
