As the people of Illinois commemorate the lives of our nation's Veterans who died defending our country this Memorial Day, Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today announced that the state's 51 Veteran Service Offices will all host Open Houses throughout the coming months for Veterans, their families, and survivors of fallen service members. The Veteran Service Offices house the state's 73 Veteran Service Officers, who offer help to Veterans and their families in applying for and receiving compensation and benefits from the federal VA and the state. The Governor is also encouraging residents to spread the word about the state programs over the course of Memorial Day to help ensure that Veterans and their families get the benefits they fought for and deserve.
