Mr. BISHOP of Utah. Mr. Speaker, for the past year, Major Jeff
Shulman has served as an Air Force Congressional Fellow in my personal
office, and today marks his graduation from that program. Major Shulman
has been selected for promotion to Lieutenant Colonel as he will be
accepting a new assignment abroad serving our country in the coming
Major Shulman's Air Force career began when he was first commissioned as a Distinguished Graduate from Saint Louis University in 2003. He has served with distinction as an F-16 Instructor Pilot, Mission Commander, and a Flight Examiner in the AT-38C. Additionally he has served as an Aide-de-Camp to two Four-Star General officers as well as a fellow at RAND Corporation. Major Shulman has flown the F-16 operationally during Operation NOBLE EAGLE and Operation ENDURING FREEDOM and has 170 combat hours in the F-16 and over 1,500 hours in fighter aircraft.
Major Shulman quickly became a valued and respected member of my staff, and was responsible for making invaluable contributions to several major legislative projects, including preserving and protecting military test and training ranges in the Western United States against various types of encroachments and undue restrictions.
Major Shulman is truly representative of some of the finest of his generation serving in the United States military, and I believe that his actions and conduct so far in his career have demonstrated a commitment to the Air Force's core values of integrity, service before self, and excellence in all he does.
Our nation is well-served to have individuals of Major Shulman's caliber and integrity serving to defend our freedoms. As he leaves his Capitol Hill fellowship, we can all join in saying to him, job well done.
As he and his loving and dedicated family move on to the next assignment, we send with them our best wishes for a happy and successful future.
