  Mr. PALLONE. Mr. Speaker, it is my honor to recognize the dedication 
of the Sgt. Jack McGreevey Memorial Park in Carteret, New Jersey. I 
join with borough officials, employees, residents, and the McGreevey 
family in paying tribute to the life and service of Sgt. Jack 
  A Marine Corps veteran who served in Guam, China, and Japan during 
WWII and as a Sergeant and Drill Instructor during the Korean War, Sgt. 
McGreevey was a fierce advocate for veterans. In his capacity as a 
Legislative Aide for state Senator Joseph Vitale, Speaker Craig 
Coughlin, and Assemblywoman Yvonne Lopez, Sgt. McGreevey worked with 
local veterans to secure benefits. In addition, through his service 
with various veterans' organizations, Sgt. McGreevey was an effective 
voice on behalf of the veteran community and fought to promote their 
priorities and support their needs.
  Sgt. McGreevey was a friend to everyone. His affable demeanor left an 
impact on everyone he met. He exemplified honor, integrity, and 
professionalism throughout his life, and I am confident his commitment 
to service will continue to inspire others.
  Mr. Speaker, once again, it is my honor to commemorate this 
dedication ceremony in remembrance of Sgt. Jack McGreevey. Sgt. 
McGreevey honorably served our Nation and the veterans' community, and 
his selflessness, duty, and civic engagement are truly deserving of 
this recognition.
