Illinois House Resolution 223 was adopted March 31, 2011, proclaiming March 30, 2012, as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” in the state of Illinois.
In honor of this day and to bring much-deserved recognition to these heroes, the village of Winnebago will proudly display its “Flags Over Bago.” This display consists of 165 U.S. flags, flying 50 feet apart along the main street, Elida. The flags will be put up Thursday, March 29, and taken down Sunday, April 1. Everyone is invited to drive through Winnebago and remember those who served our country in Vietnam.
