MASS DEPLOYMENT 2016

OPERATION MOTOWN MUSTER

DETROIT, MI | June 23 - 30, 2016

Operation Motown Muster took place from June 23 – 30, 2016 in Detroit, Michigan. Over the course of the week, a team of 72 veterans served alongside local volunteers at four locations across the city: Central High School, Priest Elementary School, the Osborn Neighborhood and Recovery Park. This team concentrated their efforts to help revitalize neighborhoods, parks and schools. Each day, the team deployed and executed a variety of high-impact missions including construction, landscaping, painting, and public arts projects.

WHY DETROIT?

Today, Detroit faces economic and social related trials that many veterans last encountered during deployments to countries in crisis. Lack of essential resources and opportunities means the children of Detroit are at risk of missing out on the bright future they deserve. Detroit is home to nearly 700,000 residents who are resilient and already working to shape the city’s future. It’s a proud history worth fighting for. That’s where our nation’s veterans come in. Veterans are a powerful force when called upon to serve. Using their skills, leadership and experience, they can help revitalize a city, street by street and block by block. And that’s why we mobilized in Detroit June 23-30 to add much needed capacity to organizations and communities who are carrying on these revitalization efforts every day.
