Senate leaders paid tribute Thursday  to two retiring congressional employees who are largely unknown to the general public but well-known among Capitol Hill regulars such as lawmakers, staffers and reporters.

Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Terrance W. Gainer, the chief law enforcement officer for the Senate, and Daryl Chappelle, who drives one of the iconic underground subways that connects the Capitol to the Russell Senate Office Building, have both announced plans to retire soon.
