The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Illinois Bicentennial Committee has joined together to honor the work of courageous veterans who live in Illinois. Their goal is to bring honor and recognition to as many as 200 veterans at a major celebration of statehood later this year.
They are requesting the public’s assistance in nominating those veterans who have served honorably and whose contributions have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
If you’d like to nominate a veteran, please review the below documents. Nominations should be submitted to IDVA using the mailing information below. Nomination forms and supporting documents must be received by July 31, 2018.
Award recipients will be expected to attend a gala event at the United Center in Chicago on December 3, 2018. During this public event, honorees will receive an award in recognition of their contributions and achievements.
