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.

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.
