Vigil focuses on women veterans
For Jennifer Dischler, it was her years in the Illinois National Guard that gave her a deep respect for military veterans — and her career as a social worker at Pleasant View in Ottawa.
Friday, Nov. 3, with rifle in hand, she will be showing that respect as the first of 96 veterans to take a 15-minute watch during the ninth annual 24-hour Veterans Honor Guard Vigil at the War Memorial in downtown Ottawa’s Washington Square.
