Clinton Chamber Of Commerce issued the following announcement on June 18.
It was an honor to meet William Shuttleworth today at the Clinton IL Chamber of Commerce! He’s walking over the next few months, Coast to Coast, from MA to CA, to raise awareness of our Veterans. He will be at the American Legion in Clinton today at 4:00pm if you’d like to meet him!
Veterans gave a lot and often have little to show for it. More than 25% of all homeless men are veterans, and many of these forgotten warriors struggle with employment, addiction and sobriety. These men and women have little voice in Congress. Today, less than 18% of Congress has served in the military, compared to 78% in 1972.
