Only one of the veterans was taken to Advocate South Suburban Hospital, according to a Tinley Park Fire Department on the scene, who said he had no information on his condition. The man, who was a member of the Korean War Veterans Association, became ill while he was standing with other members of veterans groups during the ceremony. He went to sit down during one of the speeches, and paramedics from Trace Ambulance were called to the scene soon after.
The L-W North student was part of the color guard at the ceremony, which stood in front of the crowd during the ceremony. He became light-headed and was helped over to one of the stations newly installed memorial benches.
