WEST CHICAGO, Ill. – To honor those who have served our country, state Rep. Maura Hirschauer, D-Batavia, is hosting a Veterans Breakfast at VFW Post 6791 in West Chicago.
“After our veterans have sacrificed so much for our communities, this is a small way to celebrate their contributions while giving them a space to voice their concerns,” Hirschauer said. “This also provides the chance for veterans and their families to learn a little bit more about the work we’ve done in Springfield this year.”
The Veterans’ Breakfast will be held on Dec. 9 at the VFW Post 6791 located at 431 N. Neltnor Blvd. in West Chicago. Hirschauer invites local veterans and their families to share their thoughts on legislation and other issues they face in their communities. Additionally, Hirschauer has invited state Representative Stephanie Kifowit, USMC Veteran 90-94 and the Chair of the Illinois House Veterans’ Affairs Committee to share her experiences and talk about work being done in for Illinois veterans.
“As a Veteran, I have seen firsthand how difficult it is to find state and federal resources, especially when returning home from active duty,” Kifowit said. “This is a great opportunity for veterans to join together in fellowship and share their frustrations in addition to learning about state level initiatives aimed to improve access to housing, healthcare and state services.”
