Each year on November 11, Veterans Day is set aside to thank and honor all those who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime. IL Corn honors this day, too, saluting all our veterans. We would like to draw special attention to those in our leadership who served our nation, and more broadly, the impact that rural Americans have on our nation’s military. Please join us in this remembrance tomorrow by attending a local Veterans Day service, displaying an American flag, contributing to your local American Legion or VFW, or with a simple thank you to a veteran. IL Corn says thank you to Ted Mottaz, a member of the Illinois Corn Growers Association Board of Directors for his service to our country during the Vietnam war. Please listen to the audio file associated with this daily update for additional observations from US Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue.
