Welcome Home Veterans program available to residents
This year, Village of Lombard’s Commu- nity Relations Committee recently initiated a “Welcome Home Veterans Program,” a way for the Village to honor Lombard residents re- turning home from serving our country. Trustee Dan Whittingon, Chairman of the committee, said the idea stemmed from an instance last winter when a family friend was returning home from service in Afghanistan. Whittington worked with the Lombard Police and Fire Departments to honor the returning veteran at his Lombard home and wanted to make sure all residents who knew of some- one who had fi nished service could do the same. Lombard Police Sergeant William Marks has been the leader of similar wel- come home processions in Lombard through-
out the years, but said he is happy to work with the Village on formalizing the process. Through the new program, residents who know of a returning veteran can go to www. villageofl ombard.org/welcomehome
and fi ll out a form. The form includes the name of the returning man or woman, a brief biography, details about their service and where and when the requested welcome home will take place. Requestors will receive a response within 72 hours of submission from the desig- nated contact at Village Hall.
From there, Sgt. Marks and the Commu- nity Relations Committee will coordinate with Police, Fire, elected offi cials and local the VFW Lilac Post 5815 to make sure the Vil- lage provides a warm welcome home.
