Miami Lakes Resident Receives Congressional Commendation  
 
Miami Lakes, FL -  On November 7th, Miami Lakes resident retired Air Force Senior Airman and Coral Gable Firefighter Carlos Martinez was honored by Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart. Mr. Martinez received a Congressional Commendation for his military service while serving our nation as an Air Force Firefighter in Iraq. Along with Mr. Martinez, three other servicemen were honored. Congressman Diaz-Balart has plans to continue honoring our local heroes. Students from FIU will be conducting interviews for the purposes of creating a book, which will be placed in the United States Library of Congress.

"It was a privilege to nominate and recognize one of our residents that has served our Nation in the Armed Forces and continues serve as a Firefighter," said Councilman Nelson Rodriguez.
