The Kalamazoo County Veterans Service Office sponsors a number of activities designed to promote the recognition of veterans' contributions to the community and our country.
- Homeless Veterans STAND DOWN. An event to provide much needed assistance to less fortunate veterans who find themselves in a position of financial, physical or emotional homelessness. Medical care, dental assessments, clothing, food and counseling are provided for by a joint venture of various community organizations.
- Veterans Day Remembrance Ceremony. Co-sponsored with Kalamazoo Sunrise Rotary, and held each year on November 11th at Rose Park in the City of Kalamazoo to honor all veterans who served in the armed forces from our community.
- VSO Quarterly Newsletter: Issued quarterly in February, May, August, and November, the purpose of the VSO Newsletter is to inform the veterans, spouses, and dependents of Kalamazoo County of the different benefits and initiatives available to them. If you have suggestions for information or services available to veterans that you would like to see in the newsletter, please email. We would love your input!
