Joint Veterans Council of Cuyahoga County
JOINT VETERANS' COUNCIL OF CUYAHOGA COUNTY
JVCOCC HISTORY AND GOALS
The Joint Veterans Council of Cuyahoga County (JVCOCC), originally named Joint Veterans Commission of Cuyahoga County, was established in 1932 to bring together the energies of the various Veterans organizations, work on common goals and commemorations. The JVCOCC sponsors the following events: Flag Day with U.S. Army Birthday and Naturalization Ceremony; Veterans Day; and the annual Officer Installation and Outstanding Veteran of the Year Dinner in February; supports the Memorial Day Association of Greater Cleveland to sponsor the Traditional May 30th Memorial Day observance; and now has partnered with the Association of the United States Army to sponsor the Armed Forces Outstanding Patriot event and with Equal Honor For All to cosponsor March 29th Vietnam Veterans Day. It has also undertaken the establishing of a Liberty Veterans Honor Garden amongst the Cleveland Cultural Gardens and the restoration of Liberty Row, a memorial dedicated in 1919 with trees planted and medallions placed at their bases honoring those Greater Clevelanders killed during WWI. The name change to "Council" was done to distinguish this organization from the Veterans Service Commission of Cuyahoga County, a government body.

A CALL TO PRESERVE A LEGACY
At this moment, in our country, we have about 24 million veterans but our numbers are rapidly dwindling. We share a unique bond in that most have experienced the sacrifice or have a great understanding of it. Also there is an extension of us veterans, our families and friends, and the families of those who gave their lives for our country, most of whom also have a very personal knowledge of what call to duty demands and its toll on those who serve and their families. We have to work together, across all veterans' organizations and as individuals, to make sure that future generations of veterans and families will receive the best care they rightfully deserve and our fellow citizens have a clear reminder of the price for the freedoms they enjoy. The significance of our contributions should not die with us and we should leave an easier path for future veterans to assert their role in our society. We salute and commend all who make a lifetime commitment to serve their fellow veterans, those who are currently serving our country and their respective families. Our numbers, when working in unison, can guarantee an outcome worth the legacy that we share.
The greatest citizens of each of our nation's generations:
“Those who died defending our country, those who served, those who stand vigilant now and will in the future, their respective families, and the loving citizens who supported them and their loved ones while the defenders were in harm's way and embraced them and their families when they came home and made it their lifetime duty to help them all heal”
