Honoring Your Service.
Helping You Access Benefits.
Serving Veterans Since 1921
We help Veterans live better lives by getting them the support they need. The combined resources of four of America’s largest Veteran Service Organizations have assembled to get more benefits to Veterans who have earned them — this is the Michigan Veterans Coalition.
The American Legion, the Disabled American Veterans, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Vietnam Veterans of America – these are names trusted by Veterans for generations. Together we are determined to reach every Veteran in Michigan that is not receiving benefits and help them to live better lives.
Over the years, the Legion has influenced considerable social change in America, won hundreds of benefits for veterans and produced many important programs for children and youth.
We trace our roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service. Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans’ pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves.
We have many programs and services that work to support veterans, service members and their families, as well as communities worldwide.
