Veterans Inspiring Veterans

Veterans Inspiring Veterans (VIV) is working to help veterans.  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 support 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.
