COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Connecting veterans with the benefits they’ve earned. That’s the goal with the creation the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency within the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. Governor Snyder signed an executive order Friday creating the new agency. It’s designed to serve as a centralized, coordinating unit in state government that will better connect veterans to health care, education and general quality of life services.

The governor, who will appoint a director to lead the agency, said yesterday that Michigan's veterans earned and deserve the best possible support and the state needs to make sure that they can get it. Michigan is home to more than 650,000 military veterans, which is the 11th largest population of veterans nationally. According to data provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Michigan veterans rank last, on a per-capita basis, as recipients of federal VA dollars for total veterans' benefits.
