About this Gallery

Democratic U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth of Hoffman Estates, a double-amputee Iraq War veteran elected last November, encountered a basic hurdle when she moved into her congressional office in January -- she couldn't open her own office door. Since then, she's made her entire office accessible to those with disabilities -- one part of her determination to serve as a voice on disability issues.
