Former Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will commemorate Veterans Day by opening the “Portrait of a Soldier” exhibit at the Winnetka Community House, 620 Lincoln Ave., from 5-6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12.
The display features hand-drawn portraits of 291 Illinois men and women killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since Sept. 11, 2001.
“When you look at the faces in these powerful portraits, you see how young and vibrant these heroes are,” Quinn said. “This exhibit reminds us all of those who gave the last full measure of devotion for our democracy.”
