Tammy L. Duckworth -

U.S. Senator, Illinois

Tammy Duckworth served as the Assistant Secretary of VA Public Affairs and Intergovernmental Communications.  Illinois has implemented cutting edge programs for veterans, especially in the areas of health care, mental health, housing and employment.  With over $70 million in new initiatives for Illinois veterans over the last 2 years, the state has become a leader in benefits for its service members.

A Major in the Illinois Army National Guard, Duckworth served in Iraq and flew combat missions as a Black Hawk helicopter pilot.  During a mission in 2004, a rocket-propelled grenade struck the helicopter she was co-piloting and as a result of the attack, Duckworth lost both of her legs and partial use of one arm.  She received many decorations for her service in Iraq, including the Purple Heart and the Air Medal.

Over 7,400 Military Families Have Stayed Free of Charge at This "Home Away from Home" Since March 1, 2010

Military Families Express Thanks

When asked ‘where do you want to go on vacation?’

I thought…and thought and answered:

Hines Fisher House!

Not for the fun and games
which were great but for the camaraderie – mutual trust
and friendship among people
who spend a lot of time

Thank You…
You have left a footprint on my heart
