Michigan Senate salutes America’s heroes on Veterans Day


Senate veterans committee chair Sen. Margaret O’Brien and the Senate’s three veterans, Sen. Jim Stamas (U.S. Army and National Guard) and Sens. Vincent Gregory (U.S. Marine Corps) and David Knezek (U.S. Marine Corps), joined together to thank America’s Heroes on Veterans Day.

Let us never forget that we owe our liberty to the courageous veterans who put their country before themselves.

Understanding this debt to our veterans and their families for their enormous sacrifices, the Michigan Senate is proud that our state has made significant strides to express our deep appreciation for the service of Michigan’s veterans in a real, meaningful way.

The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA) provides valuable services — from job resources to medical benefits and transition assistance — to our state’s more than 660,000 military veterans.

The Michigan Senate encourages all veterans to ensure they are receiving the support and benefits they earned serving the nation by contacting the MVAA at 1-800-MICH-VET or on their website at www.MichiganVeterans.com.
