#Veterans Events & Announcements from 11/30 to 12/31

Listed below are only the events I have for the next 14+ days here in the Metro Detroit area, of which there are no new items. You can also go to the Legion 328 website to download any flyer for these and future events (thru November) at  http://www.legionpost328.org/events.html Clicking on "attached flyer" for each event either below or on the future listing at the website will get you the flyer for that event.
If your group has an event benefiting veterans, or you hear of an event, please share with me so I can share with the veteran community.  I would rather get an event 3 times than not at all!  Please make sure any flyer lists address of event and a contact person!

You can also find many other veteran events & information for Veterans on the State of MI Veterans website, Detroit Public Televisions' Veterans website, and a few others:

"Adopt a Military Family" There are many Military families that struggle through the holiday season. Selfridge Adopt-A-Military Family Christmas Program allows donors to adopt a military family in need during the holidays. For more info on what you can do see their flyer.
"Holiday Deployed Troop Packing" The Women Marines Association, MI-2 Motor City Chapter, is collecting numerous items to pack and ship to our deployed troops this holiday season. The flyer lists the items they could use, drop off points, and other ways you can help.
"Accommodating Wounded Warriors" Mentioned this a year ago but with the Holidays coming worth mentioning again.
