Mount Prospect American Legion Post 525 and Mount Prospect VFW Post 1337 would like to give Blue Star Banners to the immediate family members (husband, wife, son, daughter, father, mother, sister or brother) of those currently serving in the military.

Blue Star banners date back to World War I, and were hung in the windows of family members, to let everyone know they had a loved one in the service.  The American Legion Family has brought this practice back in recent years.  We are having a ceremony and complimentary lunch Sunday, July 14th, 2024 at 12:00 (noon) at the Moose Lodge #660 (our American Legion Post 525 home), 601 N. Main St., Mt Prospect, IL, and would like to include you and your family.

Please contact us with the name, branch of service, and rank of your immediate family member(s) currently serving in the military, along with how many people will be attending the ceremony and lunch.
