New Veteran Resource Service for Michigan VeteransThe Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency is hard at work connecting those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces with the benefits they have earned. The MVAA is here to help veterans navigate the challenges of getting connected to federal, state, and local veteran services, no matter how they come in contact with the State of Michigan. The Veteran Resource Service Center is helping veterans and their families retrieve their military documents, navigate veteran benefit programs and find services to assist in their communities. While making these connections seems simple, it is often impossible to navigate the system alone. Many women who served are not aware of their eligibility and have not applied for the money set aside for pensions, disability benefits, health care, education, spousal support, and burial.
