                          HON. GREG GIANFORTE

                             of mississippi

                    in the house of representatives

                        Friday, December 1, 2017

Mr. GIANFORTE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Loice “LA” Trotter of Libby for the Montana Congressional Veteran Commendation for his service to his country and leadership in his community.

Mr. Trotter joined the United States Army Air Corps at the outbreak of World War II. He was captured by the Japanese during their invasion of the Philippine Islands. During his 40-month captivity, Mr. Trotter endured extreme malnutrition and abuse and witnessed many atrocities. He was repatriated in 1945, shortly before the Japanese formally surrendered.

Stateside, Mr. Trotter continued his service as a member of the VFW, a volunteer for the Meals on Wheels program, and a builder helping to construct a church. At 99 years old, he remains extremely proud of his country.

I ask my colleagues to join me today in commending LA Trotter for his dedication and service. ____________________
