  • Fourth of July about more than fireworks

    Fourth of July about more than fireworks

    Sure, the Fourth of July fireworks were impressive as expected Saturday night at the Illinois Veterans Home. So were all of the trappings that accompanied the celebration, from the on-stage musical entertainment to the concessions and other attractions. Possibly lost to some, however, were the memories and sacrifices that are a part of many lives on a day such as July 4, especially at a site like the Veterans Home.
