Here  is some sample data from a table I have named EmployeeLoungeVisits

EmployeeID   VisitDate
1234                01/02/13
1234                02/01/12
1234                03/23/14
2333                12/20/14
2333                07/02/14

I am trying to write a query that will return only the employee id with the latest vist date

Using the example data above, looking for the following result set
EmployeeID   VisitDate
1234                03/23/14
2333                12/20/14
