"Good Place to Be"

.Chartered in 1989 AMVETS Post 90, DeKalb IL is part of Illinois AMVETS. In recent years the post has doubled its size and increased it support for Veterans and the Community. All honorably discharged veterans, the Reserve and the National Guard qualify for support from our AMVETS Service Officers.

VSO Support

AMVETS Service Officers offer information, counseling and claims service to all honorably discharged veterans and their dependents concerning disability compensation, hospitalization, rehabilitation, pension, education, employment and other benefits.

 AMVETS Service Officers are trained in all aspects of veteran's benefits and are knowledgeable about changes in VA regulations, entitlements, policies and procedures.  The assistance we provide is free of charge, and you are not required to be an AMVETS member to receive it.

Golf and Pool Discounts for Vets 

DAILY

DeKALB – Military veterans now get a special discount to play golf and splash in the Hopkins Pool, after park district commissioners approved the reduced rates at their June 24 meeting.

“We continue to support out veterans through discounts such as this,” DeKalb Park Board President Phil Young said. “These discounts express the district’s profound appreciation for what our military personnel have endured and continue to do to protect us on a daily basis.”

Veterans will be charged $6 for nine holes of golf or $12 for 18 holes at Buena Vista Golf Course. They would pay $8 and $14, respectively, at River Heights Golf Course. Golf cart rental at either course would be $5, and veterans will not be charged nonresident fees.

The daily admission fee for Hopkins Pool is reduced to $4 for veterans.

Over the Independence Day weekend, veterans will be admitted free to the park district’s golf and swim attractions.

Additionally, active-duty military personnel home on leave can have vouchers for two free rounds of golf and two free admission passes for the pool.
