    FITZPATRICK of pennsylvania in the house of representatives Tuesday, January 20, 2015 Mr. FITZPATRICK. Mr. Speaker, in grateful acknowledgement of his service to our country in World War II, I note the passing of Henry A.J. Apice, of Southampton, Bucks County. A proud member of the United States Marine Corps during World War II, Mr. Apice joined the National Guard in 1938. Later, while serving as a Marine he saw action in the South Pacific and was a survivor of the battle for Iwo Jima. In the post-war years, he continued his activities with various veterans' organizations and was a life member of the Order of Devil Dogs. Most recently, he was a member and Guardian of the Washington Crossing National Cemetery, where he will be buried with full military honors. He is survived by his wife, Marjorie, his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, along with six siblings. Mr. Apice will be remembered for his devotion to his family and country and now joins the proud line of veterans from all our nation's wars who, throughout history, have been the guardians of our liberty.
