American Legion seeks to recognize Veteran-owned businesses


The Naperville American Legion Post 43 aims to recognize local businesses owned by Veterans to feature on the group’s website, www.naperlegion.org.

“To support our fellow Veteran’s we are creating a Post 43 database of Veteran-owned businesses in our area to feature on the Post 43 Legion page,” noted Jennifer Slown, PAO (Public Affairs Officer), Post 43.

Slown added that all local businesses owned by Veterans are welcome to participate. “They do not need to be a Post 43 member.”

The following information is required for the database:

1. Veteran/Post Member’s Name
2. Branch of Service
3. Business Name with Date Founded
4. Industry (ex: financial services, advertising, electrician, etc)
5. Contact Info (phone and or email)
6. Website / Social Media Page

To be listed, send information to Jennifer Slown at JenniferBSlown@gmail.com or (630) 803–2251.
