The mission of Kent County Veterans Services is to ensure the delivery of benefits to Kent County veterans and their families. With the help of the West Michigan Veterans’ Coalition, they collaborate with other local service providers to ensure veterans are getting the kinds of help to which they are entitled.

Elena Bridges is the chair of the West Michigan Veterans Coalition. Carrie Anderson is with Kent County Veterans Services. We spoke with both of them to find out what kinds of help are available.

You may attend the next meeting of the West Michigan Veterans Coalition December 13. For more information:
