Veterans of Foreign Wars.

The Elite.

From Memorial Day and Veterans Day services around the state, to supporting local youth scholarships, to overseas troop support such as Operation Uplink, we make a difference. We are the Illinois VFW.

The VFW is active on behalf of veterans and their communities. We organize blood drives, lobby our elected officials in support of our nation's veterans, and promise support for returning vets and their families. We participate in many different community service organizations such as Make A Difference Day, National Volunteer Week, Toys for Tots, and March of Dimes.

We provide services and support to veterans, their spouses and their families. We act as a VA liaison to assist veterans in tackling a wide range of problems from securing support to acquiring well-deserved military awards. In Illinois, we have four Veterans Homes for the elderly and disabled, some specially equipped to care for Alzheimer patients. We perform graveside funeral service rites to honor the memory of a deceased comrade. We will always be here to ensure the honor and recognition due our veterans, in life and in death.

Please, read through Our Stories to learn more about our veterans, their families and the services the VFW provides.

When America called, our veterans gave. Now it's your turn to give. There are many ways to become involved with the VFW Department of Illinois. Whether you become a member, make a donation, or remember us in your will, your contribution goes to our state's most vulnerable - those veterans who have served our country. It's time we gave back.
