The model, which is the size of a pool table, will be on display at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 27, at Oak Trace, 250 Village Drive, in Downers Grove, according to a press release. It was originally used by then-Sen. Bob Dole to show Congress what the permanent memorial that now stands in Washington, D.C., would look like, the release stated, adding that it eventually will end up in the Smithsonian.
The Day of Honor event is sponsored by Oak Trace, Downers Grove Library and Pillars of Honor, which is the nonprofit group that transports the memorial replica around the country.
