SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Sue Scherer, D-Decatur, recently participated in a ceremony in the Illinois House and sponsored a bipartisan resolution to honor and recognize service members that have given the ultimate sacrifice.
“Having a chance to honor our nation’s heroes, especially those that have laid down their lives for our freedoms, is truly a privilege,” said Scherer. “With Memorial Day coming up, I also wanted to take the opportunity to honor Macon County’s own Logan Palmer, who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country last year. Logan was a dedicated sailor, and his legacy will not be forgotten.”
Scherer’s resolution, House Resolution 1119, formally honors the American soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines from the state of Illinois who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The resolution was adopted by the Illinois House with strong bipartisan support.
“Servicemen like Logan Palmer truly are our nation’s heroes, and I want to thank all that serve across the state of Illinois, throughout the United States and overseas,” continued Scherer. “Logan and our other fallen heroes deserve our utmost respect, and I thank my colleagues from around the state for standing with me to honor them.”
Scherer represents the 96th District, which includes portions of Christian, Macon and Sangamon counties.
