Finally our veterans appear to be receiving even greater recognition. I was pleased to see so many veterans ceremonies on this recent Veterans Day. As a daughter of two Navy veterans it warms my heart.

The Oakland County Veterans Affairs Department and their department of Economic Development have teamed up to launch an intensive media campaign honoring veterans and encouraging others to come to them for assistance. Although still relatively new, this campaign has already seen a dramatic upward trend in referrals. You may have noticed their billboards with veterans’ photos or heard them on the radio. They have even been showcased on national news outlets.

As part of this campaign Oakland County held a heartfelt reception to launch the new photo gallery exhibit of veterans photos. It is beautifully done and worth a visit. The photos will be on display at the Oakland County Executive Office Conference Center until December 20th. Go to www.oakgov.gov for details. Most Michigan counties have referral services for veterans. You can locate them through the county offices.

I am proud to say that PVM also has a Veterans Preference Program which allows veterans to move to the top of waiting lists at select locations. Contact our home office at (248) 281-2020 if you have a friend or relative who can benefit.

Our veterans protected all of us and our country and deserve the best from us.
