Important Notice

  From Department Headquarters - (view resolution) As the United States and the world tries to control the COVID-19 Pandemic, the National American Legion has canceled the 2020 National Convention. With no clear end in sight to the extraordinary restrictions on business and personal travel, hard decisions have to be made now. The National American Legion after much discussion and weighing of the options determined that it was most prudent for the safety of our members to cancel all Legion meetings until September 30, 2020.

Cook County Recorder urge all veterans to record their DD-214 military discharge records

As we celebrate Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day, I would like our veterans and their families to consider the security of one of the most important documents they possess, their DD-214 military discharge records.
One year ago this Flag Day, my office celebrated the opening of our Veterans Services Office. This was a very proud moment for me, because my family has a proud history of serving this nation. My father and husband have served - as well as my brother and sister - and my son presently serves this great nation as a Captain in the United States Army.
