The American Legion is dedicated to the service of our nation and the communities we live. In addition to programs that support fellow veterans, we have a variety of community programs aimed at enforcing our commitment to Americanism, Youth and Teens, Community Support, and Advocacy. Here are just some of the programs and services we provide at Post 1288:
From time to time our Post will be called upon to provide the Honor Guard Detail for a Veteran who has passed away. We are honored to provide this solemn service to our fallen brother and sister. Members of Post 1288 partner with members of Bolingbrook VFW Post 5917 to form the Bolingbrook Veteran Honor Guard. Fellow veterans are welcome to join the honor guard.
Should you have a need for a Veteran Honor Guard Detail, pelase contact the Post.
Each school year members of Bolingbrook Post 1288 and VFW Post 5917 travel to area schools to talk to students about their experience as veterans. The program has become so popular that we are honored to continue to be asked to come out and share our stories. If you are a member of either Post and would be interested in participating, please contact us for details on the next Veteran's in the Classroom program.
