Illinois Military Housing

The Great Lakes Training Center, Rock Island Arsenal, USCG Chicago as well as Scott AFB are the three military bases that can be found in the state of Illinois. For those who have at any time wondered exactly what a bird's eye view of Chicago would seem like then you need to go to with the skies deck on the Willis tower that was previously called the Sears Tower. The views in the tower can't be duplicated elsewhere and are amazing.
