It is always a privilege to connect with and support those men and women who have served our country through the armed forces. Many veterans contact my office for help with benefits and a variety of other concerns. We are always ready to help veterans navigate the system of state agencies and connect them with the best help possible.
We are privileged to have the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery for veterans in our district’s Village of Elwood. In September, a new life-size statue of President Abraham Lincoln will be unveiled at the cemetery. It will be located along Memorial Walkway. A visit to the cemetery is a great opportunity for families to honor their loved ones who served and all who gave so much for their country.
