West Chicago residents can submit photos and information to honor veterans in our community through Friday, August 26. Photos and gathered information will be incorporated into a commemorative banner that will then be installed on a streetlight pole in the City’s downtown area, and placed on display from September through November.
Information, apart from name and address, requested includes the following: branch of service, rank, years of service, war or conflict, and any medal or commendations received. The program is free to submit information to with all expenses being paid by the City of West Chicago. Submissions are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis with only a limited quantity printed each year.
