City of Chicago Heights Pays Tribute 
Veterans Day 2016

The City of Chicago Heights hosted Morning of Reflection this past Friday, November 11th at the Chicago Heights Park District. Local veterans groups, family, friends and residents gathered to pay tribute to the men and woman of our armed forces. 

Bloom High School NJROTC posted the colors as members of the Chicago Heights Police and Fire Departments stood in salute.  Dr. Lisa Kristina sang a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem, followed by the invocation by Bishop Ronald White, VFW Post 311. Mayor David A. Gonzalez spoke and expressed gratitude for the great sacrifice made by our military veterans. A somber moment was observed as Mayor Gonzalez and Veteran Spc. E4 Gordan Moberg, U.S. Army, placed the wreath honoring our fallen.  Bugler Cadet Alan Balderas played Taps as the Catholic War Veterans Post 1060 conducted the closing 21 gun salute.   Father Tom Kasputis, St. Agnes and St. Kieran parishes, offered the final benediction. 

To all our Veterans, our lasting gratitude for your service.
