Thank you to everyone who attended the
dedication of the Huntley Area Veterans
Memorial on Saturday, July 2, 2016.
The Huntley Area Veterans Foundation was founded in 2014 with the purpose of honoring area veterans. The initial goal is to build a memorial to remember and recognize those who have served to protect our freedom. In the future, the foundation will also provide educational, medical, and housing support for veterans.
A black granite monument will honor the 6 branches of the military including Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard. Each branch’s flag will also be placed near the memorial.
Additionally, the memorial will feature a round Gold Star Boys Monument honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. Granite benches will flank the monument to recognize Purple Hearts and Prisoners of War with distinction.
The Village of Huntley has generously donated space in the Huntley town square for the memorial.
