U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) will be the featured speaker at the NTRO Annual Dinner Oct. 14 at Allgauer’s in Northbrook.
“Congressman Kinzinger is one of the brightest young voices in Congress,” NTRO Committeeman Bill Cadigan said. “I am honored that he will be our guest at the Annual Dinner, and I think our members will enjoy hearing from him.”
Rep. Kinzinger has established himself as one of the most trusted young voices on the Hill, serving as a Deputy Republican Whip. This year, he survived a difficult primary against veteran Rep. Don Manzullo, a matchup brought on by redistricting. Now he is unopposed in the general election.
At the age of 34, Congressman Kinzinger is one of the youngest Members of Congress and was named one of Time Magazine’s 40 under 40 “Rising stars in American politics.”
After serving on the McLean County Board for five years, Kinzinger joined the United States Air Force. He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in November 2003 and later awarded his pilot wings. He has served in the Air Force Special Operations, Air Combat Command, Air Mobility Command, and Air National Guard. He has the current rank of Major. He received the United States Air Force Airman’s Medal six times serving in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Kinzinger continues to serve his country as a pilot in the Air National Guard as a Member of Congress.
