Favorite thing: Val Adamkus, the former President of Lithuania, was at one time the US EPA Region 5 director based in Chicago where my husband and father worked. I just think it's kind of cool that they knew the President of Lithuania :-) He is currently a candidate to replace the President of Lithuania that resigned under scandal and it looks like he is the frontrunner.

Dick Butkus, a former player for the Chicago Bears football team, was also of Lithuanian descent

More Lithuanians live in Chicago that anywhere outside Lithuania itself.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
