Veterans Memorial Board
The mission of the Peoria Memorial Veterans Board is to create ways to recognize veterans sacrifice; build support within the community for veterans and current military members; and provide support for local veterans.
ActiVet Program at Rio Vista Recreation Center
Veteran of the Quarter
Do you have an old American flag?
The Peoria Fire Department is now offering a solution to residents while partnering to honor our Veterans. This new program that is lead by Retired Peoria Fire Captain John Davirro will collect flags from fire stations and deliver them to Heritage Funeral Home. There the flags will be used to cover the caskets of Veterans who are being cremated, making sure both the Veteran and the flag are properly honored.
Drop-off boxes are located just inside the front lobby doors of the stations and will be available to the public everyday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Remember a Veteran, Thank a Veteran
