Rezin asks veterans to submit for 'Wall of Honor' at State Capitol

"Wall of Honor" will pay tribute to Illinois veterans

Illinois state lawmakers are reaching out to constituents across the state, asking to hear the stories of the state's veterans.

Veterans Day is Nov. 11. To honor Illinois veterans and tell their incredible stories, the state will once again feature the Veterans Day “Wall of Honor” in the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield from Nov. 4-15. Veterans or their family members are asked to submit a photo and tribute to a loved one who has served in the United States Armed Forces to be displayed.

“Our veterans deserve all the recognition they can get,” said State Sen. Sue Rezin, R-Morris. “If you are looking for a way to honor a veteran that near and dear to you this Veteran’s Day, this is a great opportunity to do so.”

Veterans and their families are asked to submit photos and written stories 250 words or less along with the veteran's name, military branch, and conflict or dates of service. Military photos are preferred, but not necessary.

Rezin provided a submission form online at www.SenatorRezin.com/WallOfHonor.

Submissions should be emailed to veteransday@sgop.ilga.gov by Nov. 3. Submissions can also be mailed to Veterans Day Wall, 309 G Statehouse, Springfield, IL 62706.

For questions, call 217-782-7330.
