The VFW offers a wide range of assistance programs aimed at helping veterans of every generation. Whether that means providing free, professional help filing or appealing a VA claim, offering scholarships for post-secondary education or providing emergency financial relief when times get tough
If you have questions about your education benefits, the VFW’s 1 Student Veteran program can help!
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
On behalf of the members of Post 1756, WELCOME! This website is intended to provide you with information about our local VFW Post and how you can be involved. As a member you will have many opportunities to continue to serve your country and your community.
Our monthly post meetings are held the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 P.M. At these meetings, we discuss opportunities to help in the community, ways to raise funds for Veterans causes and honor veterans. The post is located at 915 5th Street, directly across the street from the historic Postville Courthouse on 5th Street in Lincoln, IL.
I would be happy to meet with you at the post, give you a quick tour and share more about Post 1756. Our goal is to help you feel welcome and encourage you to come and enjoy the benefits of membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars and in Post 1756. We are always looking for new input and ideas to keep our post strong.
Feel free to contact me or any of the post officers with any questions.
Once again, welcome aboard and thank you for your interest in the VFW!
Lester, "Ed" Nelson Post Commander

That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
