Veterans a their families picture

Comments from around the county

The most valuable role the Coalition plays is establishing communication among and between agencies serving our veteran community, serving as a lifeline for the families in times of great need, and identifying public policy issues of importance to the veteran community and establishing a plan of action to enact a change in policy or law. Without a doubt we are a better community having a coordinating agency like the Veterans Coalition leading the charge.

        MCVC is a centralized space for organizations which support veterans & their families. While the offerings vary, the goal is the same; to give veterans access to services, products, and benefits without having to search too wide.

              The veteran's coalition is an asset to our community. The veteran's coalition is a catch all. If my program is unable to serve a participant, I know I can communicate with my veteran's coalition to network for the assistance that is needed.

                The veteran's coalition is an asset to our community... If my program is unable to serve a participant, I know I can communicate with my veteran's coalition to network for the assistance that is needed. Our continuous commitment to the care of veterans is imperative, there is no amount of assistance that is too small for this shows that we care not just for one but for ALL. On a personal note, I realize we are actually active duty once in our life but are actual veterans for the rest of our life.

                Martha Garrett Clarksville Montgomery Community Action Agency

                  The coalition is instrumental in providing information to community partners for a unified effort to combat veteran issues in our community.

                    The Coalition welcomes both veteran organizations and those that embrace our veterans. This is what makes Montgomery County the most veteran friendly in America. Together, we all win.

                        The coalition is the first and only stop for all things veteran related in our community. As veteran service organizations, we rely on each other to ensure those who have given so selflessly for us receive help in their time of need. The coalition allows those needs to be met collectively, and completely.

                            The coalition represents a unified group of organizations determined to enrich the lives of our most undervalued people… those who have served their country selflessly.....the ones who do not generally want to ask for help, or whom the general public does not understand....but they deserve a full and happy life.

                                    I love the community support; I love Seeing Sherry out there supporting other veteran owned business and nonprofits. It is not just enough to put it on paper or let members know. Sherry leads by example, out there walking the walk with others. I admire and adore her strong faith or mission in supporting our local Veteran community with the right approach with true honest support.

                                      It is important to me because it is an organization of voices to who come together for the Veteran. It is not competition it is community. The Veteran comes first.

                                        I work with Student Veterans and their families to help them with resources in their transition to college and beyond and being connected with the MCVC has provided me with resources and connections so that I can better assist my students.

                                          I feel the Coalition is a tremendous asset to the community. The information from the meetings and emails provide our veterans and their families with valuable information/training/benefits.

                                          Cindy Hancook Avalon Hospice

                                            Serving the Veterans population in a rural county is hard at times. The Veterans Coalition is a valuable resource that allows me to assist my customers with training, education, health issues and financial guidance. Excellent Community partner!

                                            Kathy Freed Stewart County VSO

                                              There are many Veteran resources in the community. It can be overwhelming to someone in crisis; they don't know where to begin. Reaching out to just one member of the MCVC helps Veterans and their families navigate a directed path instead of spending hours (or even days) making phone calls. The Coalition is a great tool for Veterans and other service providers. It is a one stop shop for a variety of needs and concerns.”
