MORRIS– State Representative David A. Welter, R-Morris, is offering a new online resource for Illinois veterans and their families to learn about the full range of state benefits and services they may be eligible for. Representative Welter’s new “Illinois Veterans’ Benefits” brochure is now available for constituents to view or download online via his official state website, www.repwelter.com. 

Representative Welter’s “Illinois Veterans’ Benefits” brochure includes a description of the full range of state benefits and services veterans may be eligible for;  on issues including bonuses, educational opportunities, housing, burial benefits, automobiles, camping, fishing & hunting, employment, health care, and veterans homebuyer assistance. 

"One of my most important priorities is ensuring that our veterans have access to all the benefits they have earned in service to our country,” Representative Welter said. “Many veterans are not aware that some of these benefits are available to them, particularly with regard to employment, educational opportunities, and veterans’ homebuyer assistance. I hope that everyone who has a friend or loved one that has served in a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces will help us reach as many veterans as possible with this informational brochure.”
Rep. David Welter volunteered to serve food at the fifth annual Turkey Dinner in Diamond, joined by many other volunteers from the community. Over 1,000 guests were served at the dinner this year.

State Rep. David Welter (R-Morris) toured the Kendall County Forest Preserve with County Board members Matt Prochaska and Judy Gilmour.
