About Veterans Inspiring Veterans

Veterans Inspiring Veterans (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.

A group of veterans came together with a mission to empower and support veterans in our community. We are a project oriented informal group seeking to work with other veteran groups to complete our missions. Our first mission is the Veterans Inspirational Art Show.

One of our goals is to encourage veterans to reengage with the community. Our mission is to “help veterans in any way big or small”. 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.
