The members of the Illinois Senate Republican Caucus are inviting the public to visit the Illinois State Capitol to take a few moments to remember the service members who gave their lives in the line of duty. The Caucus recently reopened its annual Veterans Memorial Wall display in the Capitol rotunda.
The Veterans Memorial Wall has become a regular tradition at the Capitol, with the Republican Senators first launching it in 2015. The display features a large video screen with a slide show displaying the names and photos of veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of their country, as well as a large area where visitors can honor these fallen heroes by writing and posting notes of thanks and/or remembrance.
With the Capitol once again open to the public, the Senate Republican Caucus is inviting people to come visit the Veterans Memorial Wall, learn more about the brave men and women featured there, and leave their own messages honoring those fallen heroes who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
The Veterans Memorial Wall will remain on display until June 15. The Illinois State Capitol is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
