VVA310 Chapter member Don Behm is honored at University of Michigan




Chapter member Don Behm (white shirt) was honored for his work with Guard and Reserve troopers retuning from  from Iraq and Afganhanistan.   Don has worked with the troopers and their families on how do deal with PTSD and a number of other difficulties, including alcohol, drug use, and depression. This may not be too surprising to read as the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan are in the news everyday, as are reports of the effect on the mental health of the men and women serving there, and their families. A majority of service members in Iraq and Afghanistan have encountered traumatic experiences and high rates of PTSD and other difficulties have been found.




Attention Veterans!

The Honor Guard needs YOU!  We provide Military Honors and recognition to those men and women who have served our great country. We invite you to join our squad as we honor these heroes and their families.

We have been called on numerous occasions to provide Military Honors Services.  It is indeed an honor and a privilege to be there when these families need us to honor these men and women for their service to our community and country.

We perform the rifle salute, Taps with echo, and the American Flag presentation to the immediate family. These typically are at the graveside, but many times at a funeral home or at a church.

Please consider being part of our unit.  We will provide, if necessary, uniforms and training.  We need volunteers to assist us with the many times we are called on across Washtenaw County.
