Mayor Pradel recently named April 4th “Naperville Responds For Our Veterans” Day, which seemed fitting as the third annual appreciation breakfast for Naperville’s veterans was held that morning.
The National Anthem and The Pledge of Allegiance were recited to mark the beginning of the honorary breakfast at the Judd Kendall VFW, held by the group Naperville Responds For Our Veterans.
Speakers at the event included West Point Graduate and Illinois State Representative Jeanne Ives and Marine Veteran and Mayor of Naperville A. George Pradel.
“It was a great day for veterans in Naperville. Naperville – a very patriotic community and days like this make me want to say I’m just really, very blessed to be an American,” said NRFOV President Pat Bowler.
Mayor Pradel was presented an award for his service to the community as mayor and as a marine veteran.
