For the past 50 years, the Lapeer County Department of Veterans Affairs has been committed to offering assistance to area veterans and their families.
The Department provides services that connect veterans and provide access to federal, state and local benefits which are due to veterans and their families, and do so with a focus on positive outcomes.
LCVA also dedicates time and effort to help veterans experience a seamless transition to civilian life, regardless of the era they served.
They also offer a variety of workshops and special events aimed at helping veterans with real-life issues, as well as support groups and networking opportunities with other veterans.
Among the many valuable services the LCVA provides is free rides to and from medical appointments for veterans. They also help with employment and job training, financial aid and health care, burial and pension benefits.
Throughout this milestone anniversary, the LCVA has hosted a number of special events, including a 50th anniversary dinner slated for Saturday, September 14 beginning at 6 p.m. at the American Legion Post 16, 1701 W. Genesee Street, Lapeer, Michigan.
The aim is to thank area veterans for their service, and for allowing the LCVA to serve them for the past 50 years.
With the motto ‘Honoring Lapeer County’s heroes—one veteran at a time,’ LCVA organizers encourage area veterans to reserve a spot soon by calling the office at 810-667-0256. The deadline to RSVP is August 31.
We applaud LCVA’s efforts over the past 50 years, and are grateful to the veterans they serve, and to all veterans for their service.
