The induction ceremony will take place during intermission of the concert, which begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 28, at the Hopkins Park band shell.

The DeKalb County Veterans Honor Roll is a small way the community can continue to honor the men and women who sacrificed so much for U.S. freedoms and liberties.


  • receive certificates;
  • have their names recorded at each County Board meeting and in a leather-bound book kept with the county’s records;
  • have their names engraved on a small plaque located outside of the Veterans Assistance Commission; and
  • are honored at a small reception later this year.

A special tribute will be made to Cpl. Christopher Piatt, who returned home early this month from his deployment in Afghanistan.
