December 2008: Last Month in Office

The Washington, D.C., office closed on December 19. Hagel was in the office that day. He had just returned from a two-day "Fly Around" Nebraska to say good-bye.

Senator Hagel's schedules list a lot of "Photo Ops" during his last month in office, not unexpectedly. Hagel took photos with Senate staffers, family of staffers, Nebraskans, and more! Here are three photo ops from that month--three among dozens. The schedule shown here has Hagel taking photos with Foreign Relations Committee staffers, a Senate gym employee, Nebraska students, and 5 other constituents. 

Senator Hagel donated records from his life & career to the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 2008. In his last month in office, they arrived at Criss Library. They became the U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel Archives.
