Boozman travels state during break
U.S. Sen. John Boozman crisscrossed the state during the Independence Day recess. On Tuesday, he was on hand for the unveiling of the Fallen Veterans Memorial in Springdale. Har-Ber High School student Hogan Maestri spearheaded the effort to build the monument as part of his Eagle Scout project.
On Wednesday in Little Rock, Boozman participated in a round-table discussion with Vietnam veterans. On Thursday, he spent time with Delbert DuCharme in Prescott. DuCharme, 90, is a former Navy SEAL who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam, Boozman said.
Also last week, Boozman focused on anti-hunger efforts. He traveled to Arkadelphia on Thursday to learn about a summer meals program organized by the Arkadelphia Parks and Recreation Center. On Friday, he stopped in Nashville to learn about its summer meals program.
As co-chairman of the Senate Hunger Caucus, the Republican from Rogers has worked on a number of hunger issues, including giving greater flexibility to the people who run summer feeding programs.
Boozman’s calendar also included a visit with Dallas County officials, a tour of the Domtar paper mill in Ashdown, a stop at the University of Arkansas Community College at Cossatot and a park dedication in Springdale.
