June 20, 2013Soldiers and their families can attend
The Detroit Veterans Administration Health-care System joins Macomb Community College and the Michigan Department of Military & Veterans Affairs Agency to host the Veterans Celebration & Welcome Home Reception from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, in the Lorenzo Cultural Center at Macomb Community College, 44575 Garfield, Clinton Township.
Veterans of all eras are invited to attend, along with their families.
“Welcome Home events are great in terms of allowing us to meet with veterans and inform them about the services available to them both here at the medical center and throughout the state,” said Dr. Pamela Reeves, medical center director.
“So often, veterans come home after serving and they are unaware of their benefits, the steps they must go through to apply, health care here at the medical center and more.
“This gives us a chance to answer so many of their questions and realize their needs in one place, at one time.”
Reeves also said a welcome home event is a chance for veterans to meet one-on-one with other veterans who can help them navigate the process.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with both Macomb Community College and the State of Michigan on this event.”
Also on-hand is staff from Macomb Community College and Oakland University to speak to veterans about the Post 9/11 GI Bill and other programs available to them.
The Veterans Services Division of Michigan’s Workforce Development Agency will assist veterans and their eligible spouses who are seeking employment or looking to start a business.
The event is free.
Pre-registration is not needed.
