The Veterans Committee will acknowledge and honor veterans who previously or currently reside in the Village of Richton Park. The Committee shall be responsible for the planning and implementation of the community's annual Veterans Day Ceremony held on the First Saturday of November, ensuring the event reflects Richton Park's respect and appreciation of the many sacrifices made by our honorable military personnel on behalf of our country. The committee may also oversee the future planning and erection of a permanent Veterans Memorial site within the Village of Richton Park.
The Veterans Commission mission is “To promote a strong, healthy, and cooperative relationship between the Village of Richton Park and service members, veterans and their families; to recognize the role played by veterans in the defense of this country; to promote equal and inclusive opportunities for veterans and their families in all aspects of society; and to support all individuals and organizations that are contributing to this mission.”
