                        HON. GERALD E. CONNOLLY

                    in the house of representatives

                         Tuesday, July 3, 2018

  Mr. CONNOLLY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize an outstanding 
group of men and women in Northern Virginia. These individuals have 
demonstrated superior dedication to public safety and have been awarded 
the prestigious Valor Award by the Northern Virginia Chamber of 
Commerce.
  This is the 40th Annual Valor Awards sponsored by the Northern 
Virginia Chamber of Commerce. This event honors the remarkable heroism 
and bravery in the line of duty exemplified by our public safety 
officers. Our public safety and law enforcement personnel put their 
lives on the line every day to keep our families and neighborhoods 
safe. This year's ceremony will present ninety-one awards to recognize 
extraordinary actions above and beyond the call of duty in a variety of 
categories including the Lifesaving Certificate, the Certificate of 
Valor, and the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medal of Valor.
  Sergeant Mark Asmussen of the U.S. Park Police is being honored this 
year for his exceptional service with the Certificate of Valor, and it 
is with great pride that I include his name in the Record.
  Mr. Speaker, I congratulate Sergeant Asmussen and all of the 2018 
Valor Award Recipients, and extend my thanks to all of the men and 
women who serve in the United States Park Police. Their efforts, made 
on behalf of the citizens of our community, are selfless acts of 
heroism and truly merit our highest praise. I ask my colleagues to join 
me in applauding this group of remarkable citizens.
