With Veterans Day approaching, the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Illinois Bicentennial Committee announced their HONOR 200 campaign. They are seeking to honor 200 veterans from across the state, whose sacrifices go above and beyond the call of duty.
The HONOR 200 campaign is looking for the public’s help to nominate well-deserved veterans. Nominees will be evaluated based on their achievements, and on the extent to which their contributions have aided, benefited, and provided inspiration to their community at large.
The HONOR 200 veterans will be recognized on Dec. 3, 2018, during Illinois’ 200th Birthday Gala.
