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.

Thank you for the share. Great page as well!

We are about veterans inspiring veterans and I have tried to promote that with pictures of the artwork from veterans in our group. But today I was reading about veteranlastpatrol.org and it dawned on me that I am missing the point. Yes, the focus of this page is veteran art and how inspiring it can be but it should not be focused solely around artists from this group. If you are reading this and you know a veteran artist, send me some pictures with a bio and I will try to feature him or her here.
I was privileged to know a true veteran artist who needs to be honored. He is gone now but his memory is not. He made this grandfather clock from left over table leafs that he obtained from a furniture store . He made three of the other clocks as a gift for each of his children. He made this violin just because he wanted to see if he could do it. I have also included a picture of him as a young man in uniform. Did I mention that he was my father-in-law!
