Memorial wall at Illinois Capitol honors IL military sacrifice
On Monday – Memorial Day – Senate Republicans unveiled a special Remembrance Wall in the halls of the Illinois Capitol. The display highlights photographs, mementos, memorials, and stories from friends and loved ones of deceased veterans. The display also features a collage of digital memorials, submitted online from hundreds of veteran families from around Illinois, as well as a space for in-person visitors to write and post their own memorial.
The Memorial Wall will remain at the Capitol through July 4th, but those who cannot make it to Springfield can view the display online.
