Speaking of Heroes...

It appears that Iraq War veteran, Tammy Duckworth has won the primaries to stand for a senatorial seat in congress for Illinois. Major Duckworth is running as a Democrat for a recently vacated seat in an area that has been held by Republicans for over 32 years. Her views on the war run with the party line. While I don't hold with her political views, here's wishing her good luck.

Duckworth lost both of her legs and had severe muscle and nerve damage to an arm two years ago when her helicopter was shot out of the air by an RPG. Her husband was also in the Illinois National Guard but was not called up.
