Michigan and Cold War Veteran Benefits

The state of Michigan is considering emergency grant funds and veterans services that would affect
about 190,000 Cold War Veterans. Legislators House Military and Veterans Affairs and the Homeland
Security Committee were discussing the possibility on Tuesday.

This would be a great bill if it passes. Now if only more states would follow this lead and that of New York and a few other states that are one by one finally doing something to recognize our Cold Warriors.
