The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA) launched the 2022 “Operation Rising Spirit,” campaign encouraging service organizations, schools, communities, and individuals to write letters of appreciation and support to veterans residing at the state veterans’ homes in Anna, Chicago, LaSalle, Manteno, and Quincy.

Director Terry Prince says hundreds of letters were sent to veterans in five residential homes last holiday season.

“Operation Rising Spirit is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for organizations, schools, families
and individuals to spread cheer to our veterans,” said Prince.

To participate, notes may be sent directly to the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
