Local residents Tim Noonan  and Modie Lavin led the effort to save the monument, which honors World War I soldiers but had fallen into disrepair at the southeast corner of 87th and Western. Several Gold Star mothers attended the ceremony, including Nancy Ebbers, of Oak Lawn, and Sheila Tracy, of Palestine, Ill. (left).
