MVAA partners with the Michigan Veterans Coalition to provide accredited veteran service officers across the state. The Michigan Veterans Coalition is comprised of representatives from the following five veteran service organizations: American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Marine Corps League, Military Order of the Purple Heart and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Veteran service officers assist veterans and their family members gather the information necessary to support a claim, file the claim and track its progress. They can also assist with filing appeals for denied claims.
