Veterans Day events help homeless vets

Veterans Day weekend is jam-packed with opportunities to help the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative and the homeless and at-risk veterans we serve. It starts on Saturday, Nov. 9, with a Comedy Show. On Sunday, Nov. 10, we will sponsor a Turkey Dinner, open to the public, with veterans in need as our guests. And on Monday, Nov. 11, Beyond Glory, a stirring tribute to Medal of Honor recipients at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts will share the proceeds with MHVI. See the details on our Event Page and join us for one or all of them if you can.
