Each Memorial and Veterans Day, the village's Veterans Commission adds the names of veterans to the granite wall surrounding Orland Park's Veterans' Memorial, "Ara Pace ~ Place of Peace."
Remembered military need not be residents of the Village of Orland Park or deceased. Veterans from throughout the region have been honored by family and friends as they proudly rise when their name is called at the village's Memorial and Veterans' Day Ceremonies.
To add a name to the memorial, complete and return this form
with your payment. The cost to add a veteran's name to Orland Park's memorial is $250 each. For more information, call Village of Orland Park Veterans' Commission Secretary Gail Blummer at (708) 403-6203.
April 27, 2008 is the last day to add a veteran's name for Memorial Day, 2008.
