Thomas was an information systems technician for more than nine years. She was injured in 2006 and retired from the military.

Since then, state officials say she's served as an employment specialist for veterans at the Illinois Department of Employment Security and helped veterans with career readiness.

She'll be honored this week in Chicago.
