Veterans Day will be observed on Sunday, November 11 with an 11 a.m. ceremony at the memorial located in the Village Center at 14700 South Ravinia Avenue.

It is during the Memorial and Veterans Day Ceremonies that the newly added veterans' names are announced as the veteran and their family and friends stand as the crowd applauds.

The last day to add a veteran's name to Orland Park's granite memorial for this year's Veterans Day Ceremony is Monday, October 15. The cost to add a name is $250 which covers the cost of engraving and maintenance of the memorial.
