Visit the beautiful 15 pillar star-shaped O'Fallon Veterans' Monument in O'Fallon,
Illinois.  Lovely to see during the day and when lit at night, the Monument is located off
of North Seven Hills Road on the south side of East Wesley Drive, just northwest of
the O'Fallon Safety Center (Police Station) and the O'Fallon YMCA.  The street address
is 737 E. Wesley Dr.  Parking, including handicap spaces, is available at the site.  

The O'Fallon Veterans' Monument is the largest in the area and is located on a
beautifully landscaped acre of ground.  Enjoy a moment of meditation seated on one
of several benches taking in the sounds and serenity of a pond and its fountains.  

The Monument is a continuous tribute to O'Fallon's veterans with names being added
twice a year.  Those received between March 1 and August 31 will be inscribed in time
for Veterans Day.  Those received between September 1 and February 29 will be
inscribed in time for Memorial Day.  Any honorably separated veteran who has ever
lived within  O'Fallon Township High School District 203 or in O'Fallon Township is
eligible for inscription.  

For your convenience, a kiosk directory, providing a personal history and the pillar
location of each veteran's name, is located at the entrance to the Monument.  
Applications for inscription can be downloaded on this website.  Cost is $100 per
name.  Our mailing address is PO Box 406, O'Fallon IL  62269.
