Proceeds to Support Lincoln Land Community College Brian McMillen Veterans Scholarship Fund

Springfield, IL – Illinois State Police (ISP) officials, family, friends and local community will come together with the Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC) Veterans Club in support of the Brian McMillen Memorial Run/Walk this Saturday, 8:00a.m., May 24, 2014, at Lincoln Land Community College’s Springfield Campus. 

ISP Trooper McMillen was tragically killed in the line of duty at the age of 24 by an intoxicated driver on October 28, 2007, while responding to a request for assistance by a local officer.  Trooper McMillen was assigned to District 9 Patrol in Springfield after having just graduated from the ISP Academy nine months earlier.  

During his college years, Trooper McMillen attended LLCC and worked in the Veterans Affairs Office, and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Illinois-Springfield. 

Trooper Brian McMillen was a decorated veteran having served as a Technical Sergeant in the Illinois Air National Guard’s 183rd Security Forces Squadron Fighter Wing, where he participated in overseas deployments to Saudi Arabia, Romania, and Italy. 

Trooper McMillen was an athlete and devoted runner.  The Lincoln Land Community College Veterans Club keeps his legacy of service alive by honoring his accomplishments with the Brian McMillen Memorial Run/Walk.  Proceeds from the event provide financial support to veterans attending LLCC through the Brian McMillen Veterans Scholarship Fund.

Registered Run/Walk participants can choose to walk 1-mile or run in the 5K/10K races.  For more information, runners and walkers can register online at or visit
