☆ Our Mission ☆
Honoring Veterans For 25 Years!
To honor the Veterans of the past
, we focus on the state owned, Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery. The Cemetery is funded in part by the Federal Cemetery Grants Program and operates within those guidelines.
The Northern Nevada Veteran's Coalition provides support for special site improvements, emergency equipment and supplies and voluntary labor. We provide professional style Honor Guard Services to any Veteran being interred here.
Our once a month Service for the Unaccompanied provides full military style honors to Veterans who, for whatever reason, have no family representation. The NNVC stands in for those families.
We also spearhead and coordinate the annual Memorial Day Ceremony held at the NNVMC.
We honor the present
by our involvement in the Certified Nevada Veteran Advocate program. This program provides guidance to Veterans, directing them to various programs to assist them in their lives.
Our other program, the Heroes Hand Up House, provides a temporary (9-12 months) residence, rent free, to a deserving Veteran and family to help transition from the military to civilian life, We also provide the Veteran with employment assistance and financial training.
We honor the future
by providing our communities with an understanding of the contributions made by our Veterans to this country. We do this by speaking to various civic organizations and instilling in our young people the importance of patriotism and their own lives.
We coordinate and fundraise for the annual Wreaths Across America Program held each year in December. We also enlist the communities help-especially the children-in placing the wreaths on the graves of the Veterans again instilling a sense of patriotism in our young.
The Nevada Veteran's Coalition was originally chartered July 1992 as the "Veterans Memorial Cemetery Support Group of Northern Nevada. We will continue to serve in the same spirit and with the same dedication as intended by our founder, David E. Parsons.
