As we modified our programming calendar for this difficult year we knew we would need to find a new creative way to honor our Forest Park Veterans and to share our continued oral history initiative, Our Neighbors, Our Heroes. We are very proud to display four banners on the fence of Veterans Field, visible from Harrison Street. It is our hope to continue to add banners every year as we collect more stories from Forest Park Veterans. If you are interested in sharing your story please email email@example.com
Thank you to Mohr Oil for their sponsorship which made these banners possible. Thank you to Nancy Cavaretta for interviewing, research, and writing these stories.
