AMVETS Department of Michigan
The AMVETS Department of Michigan was formed in December 1945 and has been in service for our veterans ever since.
The Department is proud that inare “Members at Large” which only means they are not affiliated with any one post. We are considered to be the 5th largest AMVET Department in the Nation closely following IL based on 2009 reports. As well as the 4th Largest Veterans Organization as a whole. We are also considered a Veterans support group for the National Guard and Reserve.
Currently the AMVETS Department of Michigan is also involved with assisting Veterans throughout the State with our Veterans Service Officer’s Headquartered in Detroit with branch offices or Service Officer’s support at many of the Veterans Administration Hospitals and Clinics as well as many Civic and Senior Centers around the state. With a small amount of funding from the State and the Michigan Department of Veterans Affairs we are proud to have recovered in excess of $25,000,000.00 in benefits for our Veterans of this state just for the year 2009. It should be noted that our service organization assists any veteran and they do not have to be a member of the Organization to get assistance.
