Showcase Veterans at Illinois State Capitol


For the past several years, Illinois Senate Republicans have been hosting an annual Veterans Day display to pay tribute to our state and nation’s veterans. This year’s “Honoring All Who Served” Veterans Day Display will be available for visitors to view from Thursday, November 10th, through Monday, November 28th, in the State Capitol Rotunda.

To showcase the legacy of our nation’s brave men and women, Sen. Stewart is encouraging residents throughout the state to submit a photograph and written story of any veteran, so it can be displayed.

Families who would like to participate in this year’s display should submit a photo and written story (max: 250 words) with the following information: name, military branch (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, National Guard, Navy) and conflict served (Afghanistan, Iraq, September 11, Gulf War, Vietnam, Korea, WWII, WWI, Peacetime, other). Military photos are preferred but not necessary.

If possible, please email submissions to [email protected] by November 10th. Submissions will be accepted through November 28th, 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. For questions, please call (217) 782-0956.
