#Veteran Events & Announcements 3/22 to 4/6

Listed below are only the events I have for the next 14+ days here in the Metro Detroit area, of which there are 12 new items. You can also go to the Legion 328 website to download any flyer for these and future events (thru May) at  http://www.legionpost328.org/events.html
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 and a few others:
