The events start at 1 p.m. with a presentation by Honor Flight Chicago, including a veteran telling what the trip to Washington, D.C., meant to him.

At 2 p.m., stories will be told about veterans who have bricks donated in their honor at Memorial Park.

And at 3 p.m., the American Legion Merle Guild Post 208 will show its famous flag ceremony, including the flags of six U.S. military services, with readings and songs.
