    CORNYN. Mr. President, I want to start my remarks today by remembering a great Texan who passed away just yesterday. Sandy, my wife, and I are deeply saddened by the loss of Borah Van Dormolen, a remarkable patriot, a respected leader, and a loving wife.

    Borah rose through the ranks of the U.S. Army, achieving the rank of lieutenant colonel. After more than two decades serving her Nation in the uniform of the U.S. Army, she poured her energy and sense of duty into helping our State. Frequently offering frank advice in only the way Borah could, she was a leader by example and a great friend.

    Borah's legacy will live in many ways, including in the young Texans she helped me select for nominations to our Nation's military academies through her service on my Military Academy Selection Committee.

    Sandy joins me in sending our thoughts and prayers to Borah's husband, LTC Rich Castle, their families, and all those whom Borah touched throughout her journey in life.
