The IL VFW has adopted the criteria from National VFW as the criteria that we will use to select our Veteran of the Month, Veteran of the Quarter, and ultimately our Veteran of the Year. Any veteran that is selected for Veteran of the Month or Veteran of the Quarter is encouraged to submit information for the #StillServing campaign recognition in order to ensure they are qualified for further advancement in the program.
Veteran of the Quarter will be chosen from the 3 monthly awardees for that quarter and the Veteran of the Year will be chosen from the Quarterly awardees. A limited number of "spot awards” will also be available.
