Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day

U.S. Representative Glenn 'GT' Thompson has three sons who are grown, but on Thursday he had a special guest for Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Seth Parish, a first-grader from Maryland joined Congressman Thompson for a day in the nation's capital. Seth's Dad was in the U.S. Army and died in 2009 about a month before Seth was born. The nonprofit Tuesday's Children connected Congressman Thompson with Seth. Tuesday's Children uses its experience and expertise to help our military families work through their own losses.

Seth, who is 7, attended committee meetings with Congressman Thompson, went to votes on the House floor, and they even had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch at the Capitol.
