Paying tribute

The Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives wants to thank all veterans who have served our country for their valiant efforts in war and peace times. We appreciate our freedoms because of your sacrifices … and we would like to recognize directors serving on rural electric cooperative boards throughout the state of Illinois who have also served in the military.

This recognition is made possible by your cooperative personnel who provided us with this information.
