If you or your VFW Post is in need of a US Flag, VFW Department of Michigan is partnering with Michigan State Industries (MSI) for the creation of hand made flags for affordable prices.
If you are interested in purchasing a flag, email department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 517-485-9456. There is a $5 shipping charge per flag order. If order is larger than one flag, shipping will vary.
MSI hosts a skills program for incarcerated citizens as a part of criminal justice reform. Michigan State Industries employs 550 inmates at 12 facility operations across 9 State correctional institutions. These programs teach inmates valuable skills which will help them upon release. Several of these operations provide certifications such as ABO (American Board of Opticianry) certifications, and Hi-Lo Certifications, which make it far simpler to reintegrate into society, and far less likely for recidivism. Those who participated in Michigan State Industries' work programs are significantly less likely to reoffend.
