Memorial Day Services Veterans Day Services
Many of our VFW posts throughout the state of Illinois provide services on these days to recognize, honor and respect America's war dead. It is but a small gesture of appreciation for all those who have made the supreme sacrifice for their
country, for our country, for the freedom and strength that is the United States of America.
U.S. Flag Disposal Services
Check with your local VFW post to see if they provide a flag disposal service for your used flags. As flags deteriorate from usage and
weather, in honor of our country and all the flag represents, it is fitting to destroy the flag in an honorable way.
VFW posts volunteer and help in funding efforts for many community projects. Direct community involvement
always has been, and always will be a major VFW priority.
