THANK A HOOSIER VETERAN - STRAIGHT FROM THE SENATE

Details

Most of us know at least one Hoosier veteran – whether it's our father, niece or neighbor. These brave men and women dedicated their lives to protecting our freedom, and we must take every opportunity to thank them for their service.

This spring, I encourage you to get involved in a cause to recognize a very special group of Indiana veterans – those who fought in World War II.

About 17 million Americans served in the U.S. Armed Forces during WWII, and almost 400,000 were Hoosiers. Today...

DETERRING UNDERAGE DRINKING, SAVING LIVES - STRAIGHT FROM THE SENATE

Details

As a parent, it's heartbreaking to hear about families who have lost a child due to drug or alcohol abuse. Unfortunately, dangerous behaviors, like binge drinking, are far too common among young people, especially on college campuses.

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, more than one in five high school students has reported binge drinking, and more than two dozen Hoosiers under the age of 21 have died from alcohol poisoning in the last ten years.
