PHOTO Senator Sue Rezin (R) – 38th District

SPRINGFIELD – To help pay tribute to veterans and honor their legacies and sacrifices, State Senator Sue Rezin is encouraging constituents to submit a photo and story of their loved one who served our nation so they can be displayed in the rotunda of the Illinois Capitol from November 10th through November 28th in honor of Veterans Day. The Morris Republican has asked families to submit a photo and written story along with the following information: name, military branch and conflict served. Military photos are preferred but not necessary.

“The ‘Honoring All Who Served’ Veterans Day Display is a fitting tribute to the brave men and women who served our country and all that it stands for,” said Sen. Rezin.

If possible, please email submissions to veteransday@sgop.ilga.gov by November 10, 2022, to be included in the Veterans Day Display at the Illinois State Capitol. Submissions will be accepted through November 28, and the display will be updated daily to include new entries. Submissions can also be mailed to Veterans Day Wall, 108 Statehouse, Springfield, IL 62706.
