Military Honors Banner Program

The Village of Vernon Hills partners with American Legion Post 1247 to honor Village residents who currently or previously served in the US Armed Forces by creating light post banners featuring honorees' photos, names, rank and branch of service. Each year, Post 1247 and the Village will work together to create a new selection of photo banners, which will have no cost to the service members or their families. Residents, their family members or others are invited to submit an application to be included in this program. Loved ones are encouraged to submit applications to honor veterans who have passed away. (The main criteria for the program is that the current or veteran service person lives/lived in Vernon Hills at some point.) If you have questions, please reach out to Village Hall at 847-367-3700. Thank you for your service.
