VIV is working in a partnership with Northern Michigan for Veterans, Inc, (Non-Profit). A small group of combat veterans came together in February 2019, in Traverse City, with a mission to empower and support veterans.

We will create projects, arrange events, or simply help a veteran who needs a hand. We take no money, and 100% of what we do, say, and earn will go towards the veterans we serve. We are giving back to the community, by supporting those who have sacrificed so very much for our country.

What is a veteran? Veterans are just ordinary people who answered their country's call to serve. For many it was their first time away from home and on their own especially during WWII. Many of them saw unspeakable horrors but they did what they were called to do. The duty of this page is to honor all veterans and to remember their sacrifice.
