    BEGICH. Madam President, I rise today to congratulate LTC Glenn Johnson for his outstanding service to our Nation on the occasion of his retirement. His dedicated service to the citizens of our Nation is both admirable and commendable.

    Lieutenant Colonel Johnson enlisted in the Army National Guard and Army Reserve directly out of high school, and then was commissioned as a Field Artillery Officer upon graduation from the University of South Carolina in December 1991. He has served in units in the United States, Germany, Korea, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar, and has supported Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom.

    Over the course of his distinguished career, he has served at all levels of the Army, from platoon leader to Chief of the Exercise and Training Branch, U.S. Force Korea, to legislative liaison in the Army Legislative Affairs division. I was honored to have Lieutenant Colonel Johnson serve as a military fellow in my office in 2010.

    I would like to extend my deepest thanks to Lieutenant Colonel Johnson for his many years of service to our Nation. I wish the absolute best to him, his wife Bernadette, and their son Brent as they begin this next stage in their lives. ____________________
