Welcome to the new website. We have taken a fresh approach and added some features that will assist all in keeping focused and celebrating our veterans and family.
There are now timelines that easily identify suspense or action dates for a particular program.
A Facebook feed on the landing page allows those not on Facebook a means to see the same news. Also Department does not need to post in multiple locations. Department will utilize this feature more going forward.
These and more we will continue to develop. Please understand though it took a while to convert over to a new design, there are going to be areas we missed and we need to catch up.
If you are on a department committee, you can help by reviewing your committee page and contacting department. We will work with you to add timelines and update information.
Boys State Registration Open
Now! Yes, right now. Identify those deserving youth that are excelling all around your community. They are identified in the paper every week as standouts in the high school golf, football, volleyball, cheer squad, poms, fall play, and cross country programs amongst others. These are the kids you talk to now and have them register for boys and girls state. Registration is open for boys state. Get your commitments early. There is no shortage of kids that can go. Don’t undersell or under represent your community. If your local post somehow can’t afford to sponsor 6 or so kids interested….reach out to your district officers. They will find a post that will help. Registration Link
Most everyone should have received a postcard asking for member verification. This is a valid licensed program with the Department of Illinois American Legion. The more people that verify and share stories of their service, the better the collected history of our members will be told. You may call 1-888-827-6097.
