Honoring Illinois Heroes this Memorial Day

While many of us are gathering this weekend to welcome the unofficial beginning of summer or the opening of pools and beaches, it’s also important to remember the significance of this day. This day points us to families missing someone at their dinner tables, holidays spent with the loss of a loved one, and the sacrifice of American heroes and their families to keep our nation free and prosperous. 

“Heroism is not only in the man, but in the occasion” – President Calvin Coolidge
