Veterans Resources

JOIN US IN SUPPORTING THE EFFORTS OF THE FOLLOWING ORGANIZATIONS. LIKE THE WMC, THEY HONOR AND CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR WISCONSIN’S COMMUNITY OF VETERANS.

AMERICAN LEGION DEPARTMENT OF WISCONSIN

From the fields of Europe to the islands of the South Pacific, “The Greatest Generation” helped to liberate millions from tyranny, and fundamentally changed the course of world history. The reflections of these Wisconsin Veterans are a humble reminder that the price of freedom was a cost they were willing to pay for all of us.

Be There Wisconsin

Be There is a national suicide prevention strategy focusing on taking action to Be There for the Veteran in your life. Being There for someone is an art, not a science. There is no formula or instruction manual to make everything better because every situation is different. You don’t have to craft the perfect conversation; you don’t have to have it all figured out. You don’t have to fix things; you just have to Be There. Check out this site for warning signs of suicide.

DISABLED AMERICAN VETERANS

DAV is the most long-lasting veterans advocacy and assistance group in the United States. Among its many roles, the DAV provides free, professional assistance to veterans and their families in obtaining benefits and services earned through military service and provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other agencies of government.

FISHER HOUSE WISCONSIN

Fisher House Wisconsin will provide a “home away from home” for military and veterans’ families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee. Groundbreaking set for June 2014.

MILWAUKEE HOMELESS VETERANS INITIATIVE

There should not be a single homeless veteran in America. But in Milwaukee, one of every four homeless persons is a veteran, and 200 to 300 veterans are homeless on any given day. Over the course of a year, four times that many are homeless for a time. An additional 5,500 local veterans are classified as at risk of homelessness. This organization is committed to not leaving our wounded behind.

The Milwaukee Veterans Stand Down is dedicated to providing homeless Veterans and their families a daylong respite from the streets and a real opportunity to put their lives back together.

The organization also actively promotes the educational aspects of its mission in schools and communities throughout the Badger State.
