Michigan Military and Veterans Hall of Honor and Sisters in Arms
A Hall of Honor
Honor and Educate
The Michigan Military and Veterans Hall of Honor seeks to not only honor Michigan military veterans, but to also educate our citizens about military service as a basic and honorable duty of citizenship–to stir patriotic spirit, a sense of civic duty, and a sense of honor that calls people to arms.
Why a Hall of Honor?
Honor is a core military virtue that, unlike fame, implies true worth, genuine virtue, and real achievement – valorous and meritorious. As a Hall of Honor, we seek to recognize and honor military veterans, with due attention to their true military and civic virtue and achievement.
Navy Reserve Captain Paul J. Ryan (ret) talks about the mission of the Michigan Military and Veteran Hall of Honor and its inductee class of 2021.
Captain Ryan gives us a summary of a few of the 2021 Inductees:
- Catherine Farrell, Command Sergeants Major (ret), Army National Guard
- Jeffrey Stitzel, Command Sergeants Major, US Army
- Thomas Hass, Captain (ret), US Coast Guard
The ceremony will be on November 19, 2021, at the Michigan History Museum in Lansing. Every branch of service is recognized, from enlisted members to retiring Generals.

WWII Battalion – Sisters in Arms
Kaia Alderson’s historical fiction novel reveals the untold true story of the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion (Six Triple Eight), the only all-Black battalion of the Women’s Army Corps who made the dangerous voyage to Europe to ensure American servicemen received word from their loved ones during World War II.
Based on a true story of the 6888th Postal Battalion (the Six Triple Eight), Sisters in Arms explores the untold story of what life was like for the only all-Black, female U.S. battalion to be deployed overseas during World War II. Alderson discusses her research, the 6888th, and the potential for Congressional Gold Medal for the 6888th.
