What We Do

VSC, partnering with MACV, seeks to Partner with Veteran Service Organizations, and Community Service Providers that offer all types of help to our Veterans, Military and their Families, help that will secure the vital resources they need and are entitled to for their service to our country.

VSC also Promotes Awareness of All Veterans Issues, encouraging Communities, Veteran Service Organizations, Service Providers and Media Outlets to get more involved in helping inform our Veteran and Military Community about goods, services, programs and benefits that are available to them in their communities.

  • VSC's website lists local, state, and federal organizations that offer our Veterans, Military and their Families; the goods, services, programs and the benefits they have earned.
  • VSC Partnered with MACV in 2014, making VSC the official sponsor, fundraiser, and promoter of the annual Mayors' Veterans Appreciation Day event.
    • Starting in 2020 the Mayors' Veterans Appreciation Day event will invite Veterans Service Providers, Veterans, Military and their Families from all the Central Indiana counties to participate with us at the Marion County Fairgrounds with the city of Indianapolis being the Hosting City.
  • VSC is looking to Partner with other Communities and Veteran Service Organizations to better serve and support our Veteran and Military population. 
  • MACV is a Marion County networking organization made up of local Veteran Service Providers, Veteran-focused, and Veteran owned business that meets monthly to plan on how to better serve our Veteran and Military community.
  • MACV advises the Marion County Mayors and Town Managers on the needs of the Veteran community.

Together, VSC and MACV's mission is to better serve and inform our Veterans, Military Community, and Government Officials.

Don's Suggestions of the Day and Everyday:
Always Try to Be the Person Your Dog Thinks You Are!


Don't Let Your Past Determine Your Future, Your Current Choices Do That!


On a Personal Note:
“Of everything I've done in my life, being a United States Marine (Vietnam Veteran 66-68) has turned out to be one of the best things that has happened to me.  I feel that serving our country with pride and honor made me more respectful of our God, our Country, my Family, Friends, Coworkers, and Fellow Veterans.  Hopefully that has made me a better and more productive person” - Don Hawkins


This Website is Dedicated to all the Men, Women and Animals that Have Served this Great Country.
