Meet The Board

Billy Halstead

I have served as a board member and Vice President of Gold Star Families for many years.


I am married, have two adult children. I have worked for the State of Illinois as a Regional Director for the Secretary of State’s office for twenty-two years overseeing eight counties and nine Drivers’ License facilities throughout Central Illinois.


My Father was a Korean War Veteran and because of his service I have always had the utmost respect for our veterans. Working with and being able to help families of those who have served our country and given us our freedom has been an honor and one I don’t take for granted.
