Decoded design at Milan Illinois National Guard


WQAD-TV news team, which serves the Quad Cities area of West-Central Illinois and Eastern Iowa, recently featured a segment decoding the design on the exterior of the Milan Illinois National Guard Readiness Center addition. Bailey Edward exercised creativity in the design of the addition. The design incorporates seven words as Morse code patterns on the walls that symbolize the National Guard values: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Service, Honor, Integrity, and Courage. Embedded in the bricks and mortar of this building, these words will serve as daily inspiration to all who choose to serve our country.
