Veterans Resources

The Lisle Township Supervisor’s Office serves as a clearinghouse for information and referrals for veterans. The township keeps current information on various agencies and organizations that serve Veterans of all ages.

Many of our veterans return from deployment having seen and experienced intense and traumatic situations.  10-20% of veterans experience PTSD as a result of this trauma. Additionally, in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, about 1 in 10 returning soldiers seen in VA have a issue with alcohol or other drugs. These resources are available to help bring attention and treatment to our veterans.

Lisle Township has small quantities of booklets and pamphlets published by the VA, and Illinois Department of Employment Security. However, most of the information is available online. Additionally, the Township maintains a referal list of agencies and services available to veterans.
