Members of Vietnam Veterans of America Detroit Chapter #9 gathered in Downtown Detroit to attend the dedication of the John D. Dingell Veterans Affairs Medical Center’s “Valor Center”.  The Valor Center, which stands for “veterans aspiring to live, overcome, and reintegrate,” will not only provide outpatient mental health programming but will also offer a variety of other support services.

As Vietnam veterans, the members of Chapter #9 understand the importance of providing support for their fellow veterans, which is why the Chapter decided to donate a check for $10,000 to the Valor Center during the dedication ceremony.

The Valor Center is a vital resource for veterans in the Metro Detroit area, and Chapter #9 is proud to support its mission.  By donating the funds to the Valor Center, VVA Chapter #9 hopes to make a positive impact on the lives of veterans.  They know that every dollar will be put to good use, and they are proud to support such an important organization.

The donation was given by Mark Spooner, VVA Chapter 9 Treasurer, and Public Affairs Officer, and accepted by Bill Browning, Director of Volunteer and Community Relations, Department of Veterans Affairs.

Mark Spooner was joined by Paul Palazzolo, David Grutowsky, and Gary Hansen.

The new Valor Center is located at 3245 E. Jefferson, Detroit, MI 48207.
