State lawmakers are asking residents to share stories from Illinois veterans.
As Veterans Day approaches, State Sen. Sue Rezin is putting the call out to constituents to submit a photo and tribute to a loved one who has served in the United States Armed Forces.
The photos and tributes will be displayed on the Veterans Day “Wall of Honor” in the Illinois State Capitol from November 4 through 15.
Constituents are asked to submit photos and written stories, at a maximum of 250 words, along with the name, military branch, and conflict served.
Military photos are preferred, but not necessary.
Rezin said veterans deserve all the recognition they can get, and this is a great opportunity to do so.
Those who wish to participate can download a submission form at senatorrezin.com/wallofhonor.
Submissions can be emailed to email@example.com by November 3 or mailed to Veterans Day Wall, 309 G Statehouse, Springfield, IL 62706.
For questions, call 217-782-7330.
