Families asked to send photos, stories for Veterans Day tribute at Illinois Capitol
With less than three weeks away from Veterans Day, the Illinois community is asked to submit photos of past and present military members for an upcoming tribute at the state capitol.
The photos will be displayed on the Veterans Day “Wall of Honor” in the Illinois State Capitol from November 4-15. The display will recognize the service, contributions and stories of military members.
Those who submit a photo are also encouraged to send a brief story (less than 250 words) that includes the veteran's name, military branch and conflict they served.
You can email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 3. Submissions can also be mailed to Veterans Day Wall, 309 G. Statehouse, Springfield, IL 62706.
