Pelosi: 'By Literally Fixing Broken Hearts, Dr. DeBakey Has Given Hope and Health to Millions'
Date:4/23/2008

WASHINGTON, April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke at the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda this morning honoring renowned heart surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey. Below are the Speaker's remarks:

"Good morning. It is a special honor indeed to join President Bush, leaders of the House and Senate to honor Dr. Michael DeBakey. I want to specially commend Senator Hutchison and my colleague Representative Al Green, and others who worked with them for making this possible.

"Among the millions of people around the world that Dr. DeBakey made feel better are many of our brave men and women in uniform.

Dr. DeBakey made that all much better by introducing MASH units, giving our soldiers not only recovery and life, but the courage to continue to fight.

"And we say that when those soldiers come home, we will leave no veteran behind. And Dr. DeBakey has made the Veterans Administration a better administration for our veterans. For all of us who honor our troops, their patriotism, their courage, and the sacrifices they are willing to make, a
