Rep. DesJarlais Commends Eric Wolf of Cleveland, Tennessee
July 24, 2013
Full Text of Speech:
I rise today to commend an extraordinary young man from Tennessee's Fourth Congressional District.
Eric Wolf was accepted to and is now attending the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
Since middle school, Eric has been preparing for a career in the military.
He follows the path of both his grandfathers -- one who was a marine and the other a World War II veteran.
Eric said that he felt called to serve his country after reading the book "Lone Survivor", which led him to look at what he was doing to give back to our great nation
In addition to his appointment, Eric built a solid reputation in his hometown of Cleveland, Tennessee. He graduated from McCallie High School with a 4.1 GPA and was a star athlete.
Eric's drive and unabashed patriotism exemplify the best of our country. I wish him the best of luck and know that he will make us all proud.
