Rep. Lipinski Honors America's Veterans
U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3) honored our nation’s veterans on Veterans Day by taking part in ceremonies in Worth, Justice, Lockport, Romeoville and Oak Lawn.
“On Veterans Day, we all should take a moment to reflect and honor those brave men and women who have served the United States of America. We would not be home to the greatest country in the world if not for the dedication and selfless service of those who wore our nation’s uniform to protect our freedoms and our values. We owe them the life we know today,” Rep. Lipinski said. “For these very reasons, I am committed to fighting for our veterans and military men and women to see that they are afforded the respect, recognition and assistance they deserve. I believe, as a nation, that this is our obligation to uphold not just today, but every day.”
On Nov. 18, Rep. Lipinski will be hosting, with the Village of Romeoville, a Veterans Jobs Fair at the Romeoville Recreation Center, 900 W. Romeo Road, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Veterans seeking jobs will have the chance to meet with area businesses interested in hiring veterans. Attendees should bring multiple copies of their resumes.
On Dec. 10 at Oak Lawn’s Johnson-Phelps VFW Post 5220, 9514 S. 52nd Ave., Rep. Lipinski will be hosting a Veterans Fair from 10 a.m. to noon. At the congressman’s Veterans Fair, congressional staff, the Illinois and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will be joined by other organizations to assist veterans with a variety of issues, including military personnel and medical records, veterans’ claims and benefits, medals earned but not received, VA hospital billing, placement in VA homes, GI Bill information, nominations for U.S. Service Academies and requests for flags flown over the U.S. Capitol.
