The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs is looking for more nominations for the state’s “Honor 200” effort. The project aims to highlight the service of 200 exceptional veterans from Illinois. Veterans’ Affairs Spokesperson Dave MacDonna says over 100 nominations have been received so far, but they want many more.
Nominations will be accepted thru the end of August. Visit www.illinois.gov/veterans and click on “Honor 200” for more details. Those chosen will be honored at the state’s Bicentennial Gala in December.
