Read up on John Dingell

I just spent a half hour looking at several sites and stories about him. He retired in 2015 after 59 years of service. He and another Congressman who retired at the same time were the last WW2 vets to serve in Congress.
As an 18 year old page he was in the Chamber when FDR gave his Day of Infamy speech following Pearl Harbor.
Amazing to think of the history that he saw and was a part of for almost 100 years.

Thank for for all of your service, Sir.

1. He was 6'4"

I know, shallow, but still. He was a giant in more ways than one
