LDN -- Top Stories

Sunday, August 14th was Veteran's Day at the Illinois State Fair. Governor Bruce Rauner handed out plaques to several Illinois Veterans who have gone above and beyond to support their fellow Veterans in their communities. Among those recognized was Joe Schaler of Lincoln, who organized the movement to create a Veteran's Assistance Commission in Logan County. Schaler acted as the spokesperson and point person in getting the new organization up and running for Logan County veterans. Rauner (left) presented Schaler (center) with the Illinois Veterans' Volunteer and Appreciation Award.
