JBT Veterans Breakfast 1PLAINFIELD- State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) joined State Senator Pat McGuire (D-Joliet) to hold a breakfast for area veterans Wednesday.

“Our veterans have done so much for our nation, and I wanted to thank them for their service and ensure they were aware of available community resources,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “I look forward to having more events geared toward veterans in the future.”

Over 120 people attended the breakfast, which featured guest speaker USMC Major Charles “Lynn” Lowder, whose organization 1 Vet At A Time helps entrepreneurial veterans start their own businesses.

“Lynn Lowder has an inspiring story and a strong commitment toward helping our veterans succeed both personally and professionally,” Bertino-Tarrant said.

Representatives from the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Attorney General's Military and Veterans Rights Bureau, U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs Vet Center and the Will County Veterans Assistance Commission were also on hand to discuss services and programs they offer.
