Illinois celebrates Veterans Day with weekend events
CHICAGO – Illinois commemorated Veterans Day with calls for peace and a slate of events Sunday to honor those who served, from parades to a museum dedication and even an offer of free legal help.
The highest-profile events included a grand reopening for a Chicago museum that features thousands of works created by veterans and a dedication at Chicago’s Navy Pier for a traveling exhibit showcasing drawings of fallen Illinois service members, an event attended by Gov. Pat Quinn.
“As we honor our service members on Veterans Day, we must remember the sacrifices so many have made for our country,” Quinn said in a statement. “This exhibit is a reminder of how much a brave few have given on behalf of so many.”
