In 1933 fifteen World War I veterans banded together and founded
our post. In June of 1934 The American Legion granted a charter
officially forming Manteno American Legion Post 755.
Today our membership totals over 200 men and women from all
branches of the military. Our membership has served during all
conflicts since our founding.
Post 755 has grown to be a pillar of our community and is governed
by elected officers and an elected Executive Committee.
Our Legion consists of a Lounge, Restaurant and Rental Hall.
Post 755 also owns and operates a memorial park complete with a
pavilion. It is located at the corner of Main and Third Street in
beautiful downtown Manteno, Illinois. The park is open to public use.
Our Color Guard presents our nations colors at Manteno High School
events, Manteno Youth Softball League opening day festivities,
Manteno Oktoberfest Lighted Parade and whenever else called upon
by our community.
Our Color Guard also stands as Honor Guard for our departed
Manteno American Legion Auxiliary
