Glendale Heights will air a virtual Memorial Day Ceremony all day on the cable access channel GHTV and social media channels (@VOGHNews).
It is a prerecorded, scaled-back version of the ceremony featuring Mayor Linda Jackson, Sgt. John Tautkus of the 82nd Airborne Division Operation Urgent Fury, Glendale Heights VFW Post 2377 Chaplain Bob Vargas, Glendale Heights Police Chief Doug Flint and Glenside Fire Protection District Chief Russ Wood.
The village and the Glendale Heights Kiwanis Club partnered to place more than 7,000 flags at Veterans Memorial Park to honor the men and women who died from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom Afghanistan.
