U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) along with U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Ill.) will appear together at LEARN Public Charter School at the Great Lakes Naval Station.

Here’s the details

The availability will immediately follow a visit to Great Lakes Naval Station where the Congressmen will meet with Base Commander CAPT Randy Lynch and other leaders to discuss the future of the station.

Durbin is the chairman of the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, which oversees funding for the military and intelligence community and the daily needs of over two million active duty and reserve service members. Today’s visit to Great Lakes is the third and final in a series of visits he has made in recent months to Illinois’ major military installations. He has previously visited the Rock Island Arsenal in the Quad Cities and Scott Air Force Base outside St. Louis.

Following the media availability, the Congressmen will visit a seventh grade classroom and meet with LEARN’s principal Michelle Cooney, the Network President and CEO Gregory White, North Chicago Mayor Leon Rockingham, and other area leaders to discuss educational opportunities in the city. The classroom visit will be open to the media.
