"A Salute to Our
Berrien County

Service Men & Women"
Berrien County salutes our past and present Military Personnel. Without them protecting us through the years we truly could not be One Nation Under God, and a Nation of free citizens.  We respectfully bow to your courage.
Please keep in mind that we are currently building this site and we honor the peace time and war time veterans we know of within our community as information becomes available or is donated to us.
