Cantigny Post 367 Veterans of Foreign Wars in Joliet, IL

Cantigny Post 367 Veterans of Foreign Wars  was founded on March 28, 1920 by the veterans of the 1st Division who saw action at the Cantigny, France. After much discussion, they decided to name the post after the Battle of Cantigny. The 1st Division’s Headquarters was in a chateau and with the approval of the Mayor of Cantigny, we became Cantigny Post and our post home became Chateau Cantigny. Cantigny Post 367 is known for our fish fry and bingo nights.
