Northern Illinois community members took to the streets to honor local veterans over the weekend.
It’s the fifth year local police and fire officials escorted a motorcade to several DeKalb County retirement homes.
Residents of the facilities lined the sidewalk as the veterans’ names and service were read aloud.
Robert Roe works at Pine Acres in DeKalb. He says it's important to raise spirits of the residents.
“We try and do things to keep our residents involved – involved in the community, and recognizing things that they’ve done in their lives," Roe said.
