Commander's Welcome

Welcome to American Veterans Post 2006 in Milford Michigan. This Post was chartered in March of 2006 for the purpose of providing an organization that includes all military veterans who were honorably discharged from 1942 through present day. The Post includes a majority of Veterans who otherwise would not be able to join other Veterans Service Organizations (VSO’s) due to eligibility requirements. Peacetime and Cold War Veterans are examples of those Veterans we welcome and encourage to be part our Post.

328FEFF4 E89D 42CF A1AA 77A5EA30F80D(1)

Since our charter, the Post has grown from an initial membership of 15, to a present day number of 165. Our members are enjoying the camaraderie of other veterans, while supporting projects and functions designed to support veterans, veteran’s families, and the community.

 

Thank you for visiting our website. Should you have additional questions about our Post feel free to notify us via our contact page.

Updated status of the Monday and Friday Veterans Breakfast

As you know, Oakman Hurd (RIP) and Jack Weber started our 0700 Veteran Breakfasts.  The Friday Group has migrated through many local establishments, mostly due to our outgrowing facilities.

Pre-COVID we had settled into a two restaurant routine, Mondays at Great Lakes of Waterford (on M-59 just east of Airport Road, in the old Big Boy) and Fridays at the Highland Grille, across from VC's Market on M-59.

The Highland Grille is apparently closed and Great Lakes of Waterford has agreed to host both the Monday and Friday Veterans breakfast.

Americus Grille in Milford still hosts the Wednesday breakfast.

 

Here is some current VA information from Henry.

Veterans in these categories are being contacted by Detroit VA care teams to schedule the vaccine appointment. In addition, Veterans in these categories may also contact their Primary Care, A3 South Medical Specialty Clinic, A4 South Surgical Specialty Clinic, Team J, or Team E and request an appointment.

  • Veteran patients 65 years and older
  • Homeless Veteran Program participants
  • Organ transplant Veterans
  • Dialysis Patients
  • Active Chemotherapy Patients
  • Community Living Center Residents
  • Domiciliary Residential Rehabilitation and Treatment Program (DRRTP) Residents

There are no Veteran patient walk-appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Our motto is, "Have Fun and Do Good Things"
