- Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN. Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to recognize today the 260th Military Intelligence Battalion of the Florida National Guard.
- This unique unit will be federally activated today in Miami. The mission of this unit is to provide foreign language support, counterintelligence and signals intelligence. Utilizing the many different cultures of Miami's citizens, the battalion provides language support in Spanish, Haitian-Creole, Korean, Quecha, Italian, German, and Greek. It also provides vital intelligence support of Federal law enforcement agencies and the U.S. Customs Service in the war on drugs.
- In recognition of this latest addition to our Nation's defenses, I will be presenting the battalion with an American flag flown over the Capitol today, at a ceremony on December 2. I would like to thank the entire 260th Military Intelligence Battalion for kindly including me in this event, and in particular their commanding officer, Lt. Col. Stanley L. Shively.
