programs, services and events to veterans. Programs offered include:


Honor Flight:
The Veterans Network Committee is most noted for the tremendous work they do in

see their monument. Due to the aging population of these veterans, there is an increased
urgency to support this mission.

to the veteran.

or other needs in their community.

Forum 2012:
Forum 2012 is an informational gathering at the McHenry County College for veteran
outreach and assistance. It provides veterans with resources on jobs, schooling,
community services and answers questions on Veteran Administrative services.

Gulf Veteran Cook-Off:
The cook-off is sponsored in support of Gulf War veterans, as well as all veterans two
times a year, May – September.

Gulf. Veterans receive 2 to 4 boxes a year. Any family members in the area can contact
the NVC to be on the mailing list for their loved one to receive packages.
