Madam speaker, today I rise to recognize the dedicated years of service and incredible achievements of Kaukauna resident, Chief Warrant Officer 5 Frederick J. Cazzola.
Mr. Cazzola joined the United States Army Reserve in May 1970. He attended Basic Training at Fort Knox, Kentucky, and progressed to Advanced Individual Training as an Ammunition Specialist assigned to the 395th Ordnance Company at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
After 13 years of service, then Staff Sergeant Cazzola was promoted to Warrant Officer 1 and assigned to the 2nd Ammunition Platoon. Warrant Officer Cazzola’s outstanding performance and execution of his duties earned him placement in the Active Guard Reserve Program in 1992.
Chief Warrant Officer Cazzola continued to excel through the ranks during his service, eventually earning the rank of Chief Warrant Officer 5. From 1995 to 2002, CW5 Cazzola served as a Support Maintenance Technician and the Ammunition Technician at a Regional Training Site. His commitment to serve was clear as he took on additional responsibilities in his role as Accountability Officer and Facility Manager.
CW5 Cazzola retired from the United States Army in February 2007 after a career of distinguished service. CW5 Cazzola was proudly inducted into the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps Hall of Fame as part of the 2019 Class of Contemporary Inductees. Induction into the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps Hall of Fame is a true honor and is reserved only for service members who go above and beyond their call of duty. It recognizes significant contributions made to the Ordnance Mission of the Army.
CW5 Cazzola’s numerous years of selfless service to this country are truly inspiring. Madam Speaker, I urge all my colleagues to join me in thanking CW5 Cazzola for his service and congratulating him on his induction into the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps Hall of Fame. Thank you, Madam Speaker. I yield back.
