Winger's Weekly Wrap-Up for July 10th

Rep. Winger and daughter Sammy participate in “Saturday Stories” and Open Playtime for kids and parents at the Carol Stream Public Library on July 7th.

Honor 200
The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Illinois Bi-Centennial Committee will honor the work of 200 veterans from across the State of Illinois, whose contributions are above and beyond the call of duty as they dedicate their time and energy to assist their fellow veterans and service members. Nominees are evaluated based on their achievements, and on the extent to which their contributions have aided, benefited and provided inspiration to their community at large. Additionally, nominees must have received an honorable discharge from the U.S. military and reside in Illinois. 
This award has a very special meaning for our state. It provides us the opportunity to showcase the value of community service as exemplified by our Illinois Veterans. Whether it’s service to one’s country, one’s family, friends, neighbors or community, the example set by our veterans illustrates how far individuals are willing to go, to help their fellow citizens. Both on and off the battlefield, veterans exemplify the meaning of selfless service, courage and compassion.  In this way, they are the exact role models we need in our communities!
