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.
