Our veteran and active duty personnel community are always in need of help. Rent payment, gas money, transportation or just a ear to listen. Veterans feel more comfortable dealing with other veterans who have a better understand of their needs. Bottom line we believe veterans helping veterans is a winning mission.

Community Involvement

Gurnee American Legion Post 771 is a true partner with the surrounding communities.  We participate in Americanism programs like the Great American Program which teaches young students about our flag, the state capitols, and the U.S. Constitution.


Friends of the Gurnee American Legion is a 501C3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting the veteran and community activities of Gurnee American Legion Post 771.


Friends of Gurnee American Legion depends on the generous support of our community partners and friends.  We consider our position as a first responder to veterans and other community organizations who come to us for help. Veterans feel more comfortable coming to a fellow veteran for assistance rather than general community organizations.  Help us to help those who defended our nation and paid a price we can never repay.
