Happy Thanksgiving from Marsha Blackburn

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – On the fourth Thursday of every November, Americans give thanks for many things—but mostly food, family and friendship. This year, I want to personally recognize each of my district’s 19 counties for their individual characteristics, notable citizens, and generous businesses. Thank you, Seventh District. You are wonderful constituents.

If you’re a military veteran in Benton County, you know George Hargrove as the head of all things veteran. Active with the Chamber of Commerce and Benton County Veterans Memorial in Camden, he is a faithful and passionate advocate for our war heroes. Thank you, George, for your leadership and encouragement. You make middle-Tennessee a better place to work and live.

U.S. Congressman Marsha Blackburn
