Important Message From

Grand Exalted Ruler

 Leonard J. Polk, Jr., Esq

Greetings Brothers and Daughters,

We are grateful and humbled by the sacrifices our organizations' many veterans have made for this country, our families, and our Order. Membership of Veterans has brought a unique and invaluable element to Elkdom. We, the Improved Benevolent Protective Order of Elks of the World family, are proud to honor the service of our Veterans.

By the power vested in me, I declare the month of November, IBPOEW Veterans Month. In honor of our Veterans, we will celebrate them on our IBPOEW website on our Veterans Spotlight Wall. Check the website regularly to see our Veterans as this page is updated daily.

To submit your cherished IBPOEW Veteran or family member via email, please include the name, photo, and branch of military service. Send your information to

We salute you and wish you a Happy Veterans Day!

Leonard J. Polk, Jr., Esq.

Grand Exalted Ruler
