Michigan Women Veterans Survey Greetings fellow female veterans of Michigan:
As a Navy veteran myself, I have a special commitment to my sister veterans. I want to help in developing services which are meaningful to our Michigan women veterans, and to assess the quality of existing services. That’s why we are asking for your help, as we try to understand the needs of women veterans in Michigan. We developed a survey, with questions to help us learn about your military background, health status, and use of veteran services offered in Michigan. The survey is completely anonymous. We will use the information in your answers for collective analysis of issues that affect women veterans in Michigan. The survey is online at https://www.research.net/s/Michiganwomenveteranssurvey . Or, call us at 313-456-4702 for a paper copy. Please do share this information with other women veterans living in Michigan. We would love to get responses from all the 50,000 women veterans in Michigan!
Respectfully,
Anne K. Thompson, LCDR USN, Ret.
Chair, Michigan Women’s Commission
