Veterans Day is Tuesday,  but local vets got a welcome boost from Commonwealth Edison Monday.

The utility honored veterans with a ceremony in Oak Brook Terrace.

The Rowe-Clark ROTC Color Guard joined company officials and some 200 ComEd employees for the tribute.

ComEd officials also announced that its parent company, Exelon, was donating $10,000 to help restore a veterans memorial site in southwest suburban New Lenox.

Stone slabs representing each branch of the armed forces were cracked or uprooted by vandals in September.
