U.S. Senate Honors Dedication Of Eugene Pothy To Reunite With His Son

On October 19th, 2012 at the request of New York Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand, a beautiful American Flag was flown over the United States Capitol in honor of both Eugene Pothy and his son Philippe.

For those of you who may not be aware of this, Philippe had been living in the Ivory Coast for nearly 10 years without the consent of his father, who, during that time had done everything possible to try and reunite with his son.

To have an American Flag flown over our nation's Capitol Building at the request of an American Senator in your honor is a tremendous honor. It is something that is not done often.

As for my dear friend Eugene, I am so honored to call him one of my dearest friends.  He is a hero to me. He is a hero to many.
