Other cities, including Aurora, plan Veterans' Day parades. In Springfield the parade will go to the Illinois Capitol and there will be a ceremony afterward in the rotunda.

And lawmakers will be making appearances too. U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk will be in the Chicago suburb of Buffalo Grove. He plans to give World War II veteran George Boesen of Arlington Heights the medals he earned for his service but never received.
