At the American Legion Post #66, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing issues that affect veterans in the DeKalb community. Advocacy is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
Our post provides a support network for veterans and their families. We are not only a social club but also fund raise for veterans in our community who may be struggling financially, while also assisting them in getting the resources they need.
Our post provides dozens of scholarships to children in the DeKalb community. Twice a year we also award one active member of the NIU Veteran Association a $500 scholarship to help ease their financial strain as a college student and as a transiting veteran. Contact us to learn more about our scholarship programs.
When we pay tribute to our veterans, we want to make sure that it is done in a proper military manner. Let us give our veterans not only a tribute but individual recognition for his or her service to their country, and for some it may have been the ultimate sacrifice. Let us honor them the way they honored their country, and to never forget those who did not come home. Contact us to find out how you can get involved with our post's Honor Guard detail
