The Veterans Commission addresses issues that concern military veterans of Country Club Hills and their families. The Veterans Commissioners also conduct research in order to provide information relative to education and burial benefits, as well as civic activities.
The Veterans Commission was also responsible for bringing the Moving Veterans Wall to the City of Country Club Hills. This event was held from August 10, 2005 through August 17, 2005, 24 hours a day, with a large number of the volunteers being veterans. On Memorial Day, the Veterans Commission sponsors the annual Memorial Day service at St. John’s Cemetery. In November, the Veterans Commission holds a Veteran’s Day ceremony on the City Campus, with Veterans from all over the community in attendance. Programs such as the Blue Star, Adopt-a-Flag, Friends of the Flag program and the Memorial Brick, are all sponsored by the Veteran’s Commission.
