This memorial honors the 987,000 men and women from the State of Illinois who served our country during World War II. The focal point is a white 22-ton concrete world globe flanked on two sides by black granite walls. Stainless steel buttons on the globe identify major battles, and quotations from military leaders and Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman are engraved on the walls.?
