The Cook County Board of Commissioners will honor the Silver Star Families of America at the Cook County Board Meeting on Tuesday, June 5, 2018. This event was initiated to recognize the service members and veterans of the United States Armed Forces who have been wounded or became ill while serving in a war zone. The County Commissioner Pete Silvestri of the 9th District would like to solicit your assistance in identifying and honoring service members and veterans from Cook County, to participate in the 2018 Silver Star Banner Program. Applicants should complete the attached (fillable) Silver Star Service Banner request form and include a short biography with details regarding their injury and the war zone in which it occurred. I would ask that the request form be signed and returned no later than Friday, May 11, 2018.
To apply, service members must meet the following requirements: "Any Armed Forces personnel either currently serving honorably or those who have served honorably from ANY war, has been wounded or contracted a serious illness and could be rated at least 10% disabled by the Department of Veterans Affairs."
Please send any materials and your application to address or email address on the bottom of the application.
