Silver Star Banner

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and the Board of Commissioners will honor the Silver Star Families of America at the Cook County Board Meeting on June 29th, 2016. This event was initiated in 2008 by Cook County Commissioner Joan Patricia Murphy of the 6th District to recognize the service members and veterans of the United States Armed Forces who have been wounded or became ill while serving in a war zone.

Cook County Veterans Affairs asks that you please solicit service members and veterans from your district to participate in the 2016 Silver Star Banner Program. Applicants should complete the attached Silver Star Service Banner request form and include a short biography with details regarding their injury and the war zone in which it occurred. The request form must be signed and returned to our office no later than Wednesday, June 1st, 2016.

Cook County Veterans Affairs will forward all requests to the Silver Star Families of America Organization, Service Banner Coordinator. To apply, service members must meet the following requirements: "Any Armed Forces personnel either currently serving honorably or those who have served honorably from ANY war, has been wounded or contracted a serious illness and could be rated at least 10% disabled by the Department of Veterans Affairs."

Cook County Veterans Affairs is coordinating its efforts through various veteran organizations and local governments, including the Cook County Veterans Assistance Commission and other Cook County elected officials and the Cook County Board of Commissioners. We hope you can attend the event and we look forward to the participation of qualified veterans from your district at the Silver Star Service Banner Program. Please note those who cannot attend may still request a banner through the Silver Star Families of America.

Applicants must verbally confirm their participation with the Cook County Department of Veterans Affairs. Original photos submitted for use will be returned so please make sure the applicant’s name is on all pictures that are submitted. For questions or to confirm your attendance, please contact Bill Browne at (312) 603-6423 | Bill.Browne@CookCountyIl.gov or Audrey Mollo at (312) 603-2221 | Audrey.Mollo@CookCountyIl.gov. You may also fax your application to (312) 603-4479.

Very respectfully,
