Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) and Assistant Secretary of Veterans Affairs Tammy Duckworth will participate in a forum hosted by the Partnership for Strong Communities on homelessness among veterans in Connecticut.

As a former Black Hawk pilot, Assistant Secretary Duckworth brings a unique understanding and experience to the Department of Veterans' Affairs. While serving in Iraq, Asst. Secretary Duckworth's aircraft was shot down by insurgents, and as a result she lost both legs and the partial use of one arm. She has since received multiple decorations for her service, including a Purple Heart, the Air Medal and the Combat Action Badge.

The event's official title, "The Goal from Here: Ending Homelessness Among Veterans in Connecticut," will feature remarks from Maj. Duckworth and a panel discussion with leaders from across the state involved in addressing veterans homelessness in Connecticut.

The event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.
