VALOR was incorporated as a not-for-profit veterans organization in the State of Illinois in 1991.

The purpose of VALOR is simple:

1. To commemorate fittingly the memory of those members of the United States Armed Forces who have given their lives in the defense of freedom;

2. To educate and promote public awareness of the fact that over 1 million American men and women have died in wars; and

3. To maintain the DuPage County “Wall of Fallen Heroes”.
