Dept of Defense Honors Pritchard

Sycamore, IL... The Department of Defense recently recognized State Representative Bob Pritchard (R-Hinckley) for his leadership in public policy changes that positively impacted service members and their families in Illinois. Pritchard has introduced nearly a dozen bills in recent years on a variety of issues that have been suggested by local veterans or the Department of Defense.  Most notable this year were HB3122, allowing private sector hiring preferences for veterans, and HB3721, which protects the jobs of National Guard members called to active duty. Pritchard said he was honored to support the veterans and their families who have made sacrifices and risked their lives to protect our freedoms.
