#Veteran Events & Announcements 3/8 to 3/31

Listed below are only the events I have for the next 14+ days here in the Metro Detroit area, of which there are 3 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:
