American Veterans Group has donated $10,000 to Leave No Veterans Behind, a non-profit organization that supports returning veterans nationwide by providing them with transitional jobs, job training, and long-term employment placement services. The gift will be used to expand the organization’s recruitment and referral efforts to connect 100 Detroit-area veterans with transitional job opportunities.

We admire the win-win nature of the work they do and applaud their commitment to never leave a veteran behind.”
