Veterans Serving Veterans, Inc. is a Cadillac, Michigan nonprofit that honors and serves those who have served and protected; at home and abroad.
In 2015, Roger Bandeen — a Cadillac orthodontist and veteran — dreamt of a park where veterans could go year-round to build community, feel at ease, and heal. Inspired by that dream, Veterans Serving Veterans, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization was born. Soon after founding VSV, Bandeen donated 33 acres of land to break ground on the project. Three years and 2,000 trees later, construction for the park is fully underway — although much more needs to be done.
Our vision is to create a community space that both supports local veterans and brings our community closer together. Construction is underway and we're ready to move forward on several important park features including a 5k cross country course, open air pavilion, chapel, 4,000 seat amphitheater, botanical gardens, guest cabins, memorials, and much more.
Vets Serving Vets has no overhead and is 100% volunteer-run and operated by local veterans. We are powered by you. Donors like you make it possible to foster a community space that both supports our local veterans and welcomes everyone. Through this ongoing project, we hope to bring our community closer together. Will you help us get there?
