From a Bobby Schilling press release:
“On Tuesday, April 26 Congressman Bobby Schilling will be joining 80 local veterans and their guardians as they participate in the Central Illinois Honor Flight, honoring America’s heroes for their service to the country.”
These honor flights started in ’05 when Lane Evans was too feeble to go although he did manage to make it to Korea in ’06. But Hare never bothered or thought it was important, even though Evans chose him specifically because he believed Hare would continue his fight for veterans.
What a rube—as it turned out, Hare only cared about Big Labor.
But thank the gods Hare is gone and now we have a congressman who walks the walk.
