Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs and the Illinois Bicentennial Office announce 'Honor 200' Recipients

Honor 200 Illinois Veterans on December 3, 2018

The Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs and the Illinois Bicentennial Office announced the recipients of Bicentennial HONOR 200 today, honoring the work of 200 veterans who continue to make extraordinary contributions to the people of Illinois.

"America is the greatest nation on earth because of the sacrifice of our veterans," said Governor Bruce Rauner. "We are proud to honor these 200 men and women as part of our Bicentennial celebration. Their service didn't stop when they took off their uniforms. They continue to be heroes among us by going above and beyond the call of duty to take care of the people in their communities."

"The Bicentennial HONOR 200 campaign is one of the most important commemorations of the yearlong Bicentennial Celebration," said Stuart Layne, Executive Director of the Bicentennial Commission.  "These 200 Illinois veterans truly make us Illinois Proud."

All the Honor 200 recipients have been invited to attend the state's official 200th birthday celebration at the United Center in Chicago on December 3, 2018.

"Honor 200 provides us with an opportunity to showcase our veterans and the values they have when it comes to serving our communities," said IDVA Director Stephen Curda, Ph.D.

The recipients represent more than 50 counties across the state of Illinois. Nominees were evaluated based on their achievements, and on the extent to which their contributions have aided, benefited and provided inspiration to their community at large.  In addition, nominees must have received an honorable discharge from the U.S. military and reside in Illinois.

The IDVA and the Illinois Bicentennial Office are thankful for the support of Boeing, Walgreens, Peoples Gas and ComED, who are helping honor the 200 veterans at the Bicentennial birthday party.
