Beginning March 16, 2011, DeKalb County inducted its first members into the Veterans Honor Roll. A partnership effort between County Clerk Doug Johnson and the DeKalb County Veterans Assistance Commission will induct and recognize up to five local Veterans from DeKalb County at each County Board meeting.
Inductees will receive a certificate of recognition, to be awarded at the County Board meeting; have their name, title and rank, as well as dates served in the Armed Forces recorded in the County Board minutes, and in a leather bound book to be stored with the County’s official records; their name engraved on a plaque to be housed outside of the offices of the Veterans Assistance Commission.
Helping honor those members of our communities that have fought to protect our freedom is an important component of our mission at the County Veterans Assistance Commission.
All Veterans are eligible for participation and may submit their name either online or by mail, (form attached). The form is located on the DeKalb County Clerk and Recorder’s website. Forms may also be requested by calling the office at 815-895-7149.
This is a special way to honor our local heroe. We encourage all families, friends, or service members themselves, to complete the form and become inducted into our County’s honor roll.
After a short verification process, invitations will be sent to the honored Service Member, their family and friends to be present at the induction ceremony. Members will be inducted in the order in which their form was received.
