​​Welcome to The Veterans Garage

- An Illinois 501(c)3 Corp.

We are Veterans and Patriots proudly dedicated to the restoration, preservation, maintenance and display of Historic Military Vehicles and Equipment. 

More importantly, we honor the Men and Women of the Armed Services by providing

our vehicles at Veteran related events such as Parades, Welcome Home Escorts, Dedications and MUCH, MUCH more.

We offer to display privately owned Military Vehicles in support of events and programs hosted by organizations that work on behalf of Veterans - Such as The USO BBQ for The Brave, Operation: Firm Handshake, Operation: Honor, The Veterans Food Drive hosted by Caring Patriots, The Villages of Park Forest, Tinley Park, Richton Park, Matteson, Glenwood and Orland Park Veterans Commissions, Vet Tech, The Keeling Family Foundation, Veterans Vision of Orland Park, numerous VFWs, American Legions and many more. 

The Veterans Garage is also a working maintenance and restoration facility that is made available for Military Vehicle owners to work on their Historic Vehicles. We'll even help transport vehicles to the garage to be inspected, maintained and repaired as needed to help keep this Historic equipment in operation.
