Any veterans group member wanna help me get a single mom to her daughters graduation?

Needs to get to and back from Great Lakes, Illinois.

You'd probably be better off posting in the Great Lakes, IL forum. Your cheapest bet would be Amtrak, but I'm not sure if that's in your budget. Or look for a Navy parents forum.

Good luck to you and your daughter.

I should have also said: If you can take the Amtrak to Chicago, you can then walk two blocks to Ogilve Train Station and catch the Metra to Great Lakes. It's around 45 mins to an hour from Ogilve to Great Lakes and I think costs around $5 or $6.

There is also a cheaper hotel on base for family members, but it always fills up quick especially near a graduation date.
i will help

I would pay for a bus or train ticket for one way. If someone else will pay the other half..

Not sure if she made it to the graduation or not.
I wasn't the single mother in need of the ride,
Id just heard about the situation.

Very nice that you guys offered help and advise though.

Ill try to post an update later to see if she made it or not.
