Chicago Ridge wants to recognize village residents serving in the military and is asking for help to gather an accurate representation. The village has constructed a glass case to be displayed in the atrium of the Eugene L. Siegel Municipal Complex, 10455 Ridgeland Avenue, to recognize and honor soldiers from Chicago Ridge on active duty. The case will include photos and information about each soldier.
“They are out there defending and serving our country and they should be recognized,” Tokar said. “We would like to recognize these people with a nice space in the atrium to honor them.”
You can drop off 5 by 7-inch photos of soldiers at Village Hall. Please include the following information:

Information about who they are, where they are stationed, and when they are returning home
