[ARCHIVED] Veteran Nominations Sought for Illinois Bicentennial

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: March 15, 2018
As part of Illinois’ Bicentennial Celebration, DuPage County is encouraging residents to nominate veterans to be honored by the Illinois Bicentennial Committee and the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA) later this year.
The organizations will join together to honor as many as 200 veterans at a celebration of statehood event on Dec. 3, 2018. Those chosen to receive awards for their contributions and achievements will attend a gala event at the United Center in Chicago.
“DuPage County has a long and storied history of military service,” said Janice Anderson, DuPage County Board Representative on the Illinois Bicentennial Committee. “We should recognize our local veterans for their courage and selflessness, and we hope to have several DuPage County veterans represented at the gala.”
Nominations can be mailed to the Illinois Department of Affairs in the George Dunne County Building, 69 West Washington, Suite 1620, Chicago, IL 60602. The deadline is July 31.
For more information, contact Harry Sawyer with the IDVA at 312-814-2450 or via email at For more information about the Illinois Bicentennial celebration, visit
