Congressman Kinzinger Delivers 400+ Cards to Veterans Home During Day in Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on December 12, 2016

Veterans from several generations of military service and potential future servicemen and women were both honored by a U.S. Representative Monday.

Congressman Adam Kinzinger first stopped at the Illinois Veteran’s Home in La Salle, where he delivered more than 400 cards to the veterans. He had previously put out the call to anyone in his district to make the cards for the veterans. The response was bigger than he expected, with cards being sent in from as far away as California.

After the event, he went to a reception in Ottawa for students he has nominated for acceptance into the military. Kinzinger said he enjoyed being able to honor both generations.

The Congressman’s day wasn’t solely about veterans, though. Between the events he stopped by Ottawa’s City Hall for a meeting of the Agriculture Advisory Committee.
