There's No Place Like Wisconsin
After a few busy weeks in Washington D.C., Congressman Gallagher was happy to be back home in Wisconsin to meet with constituents and honor the fallen during Memorial Day Weekend. Catch some highlights of his visits across the Eighth District below.
Last Friday, Congressman Gallagher visited with students participating in the 2019 EdSummit, where they engaged in a mock NATO summit on cybersecurity. Cyberspace is a decisive battlefield in 21st century, and as a co-chair of the Cyberspace Solarium Commission, he was impressed to see students engaged on this critically important topic.
He participated in Memorial Day celebrations throughout the weekend, and challenged us all to take time to research the namesake of our local American Legion Post or VFW Hall. You can watch his message above.
He also joined the Green Bay Public School System to announce they would be receiving their second federal grant to support their Head Start Program. Based off the quality of our administrators and educators, there's no doubt that these federal dollars will be put to good use in the Green Bay community.
On Wednesday the congressman joined the Hugh Hewitt Show to talk about the U.S. Navy and Bart Starr's legacy in Green Bay. Listen to his full interview above, or read some of his remarks below.
"Obviously we know everything he achieved on the field in the Lombardi era...but what he did in my district in Northeast Wisconsin, just as a citizen, as a philanthropist, is incredible. He started something called the Rawhide Boys Ranch, which continues to save lives of young, troubled men in Northeast Wisconsin, and his legacy is all around us. It's very sad for the community, but he will be remembered."
And to cap off a busy week back home, Congressman Gallagher celebrated Wisconsin's 171st birthday in the best way possible: by welcoming back veterans on the 50th Old Glory Honor Flight, where he also met another veteran named Mike Gallagher (pictured above).
