For Veterans

Dear Veteran,

The State of Illinois offers a variety of programs and resources for veterans and their families. Here you will find a collection of federal, state, and local services available to veterans on a wide variety of issues. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please feel welcome to give my office a call at (217) 324-5200 and someone will be happy to assist you. On behalf of all of us, thank you for your service to our country. Our community is grateful for your sacrifice in defense of our freedoms. Please let us know any way in which we can assist you or your family.
