West suburban Wood Dale has launched a Veteran banner recognition program to honor current and former Wood Dale residents who served in the United States military. The city is gathering high resolution photos and basic information and converting that into banners that now line Irving Park and Wood Dale roads. There is no charge to the Veterans for the program. Banners will be displayed for a year before being retired at a city council meeting. Nearly 40 banners were installed before Memorial Day and an additional group will be installed in advance of Veterans Day. World War II Veteran Joseph DiCiolla and museum President Renato Bacci are among the first group.
