About the Committee

The Peoria County Veterans Memorial is an official project of Peoria County Government. The Peoria County Veterans' Memorial Committee is an official sub-committee of the Peoria County Board.

Many Peoria County citizens gave their lives in defense of freedom in conflicts since the World Wars I and II. With the help of many public and private donations, Peoria County will be able to honor these veterans with a new Veterans Memorial to honor the Korean War, Vietnam War, Grenada, Panama, Gulf, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan and the War on Terrorism, as well as any future conflicts - completing the War Memorial Project. The memorial will provide a beautiful place to remember our loved ones, as well as historical education for generations to come.
