Veterans BreakfastPLAINFIELD— State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) and State Senator Pat McGuire (D-Joliet) will be holding a Veterans’ Breakfast next month.

The event will take place from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 21, at the Plainfield American Legion, 24741 W. Renwick Rd.

“I look forward to joining our local veterans and sharing available resources,” Sen. Bertino-Tarrant said. “In addition, I am confident attendees will be inspired by Major Lowder’s initiatives for the veteran community.”

Representatives from the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Kendall County Veterans Assistance Commission, U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs Vet Center and the Will County Veterans Assistance Commission will be on hand to discuss services and programs they offer.

"Serving in elected office carries a special obligation to help the men and women who served in America's military because it's due to their sacrifice that our democracy continues to exist," Sen. McGuire said.

The Veterans’ Breakfast will also feature guest speaker USMC Major Charles “Lynn” Lowder, whose organization 1 Vet At A Time helps entrepreneurial veterans start their own businesses.

"Our veterans are hard-wired for success in business,” said Major Lowder. “They just need someone to give them a chance.”

Veterans wanting to attend the breakfast are asked to RSVP with Samantha in Bertino-Tarrant’s Plainfield office at (815) 254-4211.
