News and Events at the New Lenox American Legion


The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Honors Friday Squad will hold its quarterly military honors ceremony December 9th at 9:00 am in Committal Shelter C. The Honors Ceremony will run ~30 minutes.
There will be mass honors for 53 veterans, who were Direct Burials. The remains were dropped off by funeral directors or delivery services and interred without receiving Honors. They were buried directly as no one requested Honors for various reasons, such as no next of kin, homeless, etc. For additional information click here then click on the pdf file

Please come out and give our Heroes the farewell they deserve.
