There is nothing more rewarding than to serve our veterans and their families.

I joined the Youth Trumpet & Taps Corps as a student member in 2015. While in high school I worked with my state representative to draft a bill allowing Illinois students to have school absences excused when playing Taps at military funerals. HB 4432 passed unanimously and was signed by Governor Bruce Rauner in August 2016.
