TRIBUTE TO MEMBERS OF NAVY PATROL BOMBING SQUADRON NINETEEN -- HON. GEORGE E. SANGMEISTER (Extension of Remarks - July 11, 1998)

HON. GEORGE E. SANGMEISTER

in the House of Representatives

WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 1990

  • Mr. SANGMEISTER. Mr. Speaker, it is with great pride that I rise today to honor the members of Navy Patrol Bombing Squadron Nineteen of World War II. This group will be holding their fourth reunion this fall and it is important that we as a nation never forget the service and sacrifice our veterans have made.

  • Squadron Nineteen served in the Pacific Theater during World War II. They patroled the waters from the Marshall Islands to the final assault on Saipan and Iwo Jima. Their contribution to our Nation's fight for freedom cannot be understated. Over the years the members of this squadron have gone their separate ways, however, their service and sacrifice together forged a bond that time and distance cannot break. They confronted danger and endured terrible hardships, and together they rose to a challenge. Many of their members gave their lives so that others might live in freedom. The sacrifices these veterans made in defending their country were great and they deserve our continued recognition and thanks.

  • The United States has remained free and has stood as a symbol of freedom and democracy throughout the world and this is due in no small part to the contribution of Americans such as the members of Patrol Squadron Nineteen. Recent events around the world have shown that people want to be free and that the fight for freedom is never ending.
