               HONORING THE LOUISIANA HONOR AIR VETERANS

                                 ______
                                 

                     HON. CHARLES W. BOUSTANY, JR.

                              of louisiana

                    in the house of representatives

                          Monday, May 7, 2007

  Mr. BOUSTANY. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize and honor a 
very special group from South Louisiana.
  On May 11, 2007 a group of 96 veterans and their guardians will fly 
to Washington with a very special program. Louisiana HonorAir is 
providing the opportunity for these veterans from my home state of 
Louisiana to visit Washington, DC on a chartered flight free of charge. 
During their visit I will accompany them to visit Arlington National 
Cemetery and the World War II Memorial. For many, this will be their 
first and only opportunity to see these sights dedicated to the great 
service they have provided for our nation.
  Today I ask my colleagues to join me in honoring these great 
Americans and thanking them for their unselfish service.
