There are four American Legion posts in Door County (Post 72 in Sturgeon Bay, Post 372 in Maplewood, Post 527 in Sister Bay, and Post 402 on Washington Island), three Veteran of Foreign War (VFW) posts (Liberty Grove Post 8337, Fish Creek Post 9290, and Sturgeon Bay post 3088), one AMVET Post 51 in Sturgeon Bay, one Marine Corp League Detachment 1130 in Sturgeon Bay and the Cooties Post 43 in Sturgeon Bay.
A three member "Veterans Commission" appointed by the Door County Board of Supervisors hires a "Veteran's Service Officer" to administer veterans affairs in Door County. There is also a "Veteran's Council" made up of two representatives from each post.
I will attempt to place a link to Post and League web sites as they're launched. At this time I recommend you go through the national web sites at the top of this page.

           All veteran organization Commanders should be familiar with the Incident Command System. It's now required teaching for all law enforcement, fire departments, and emergency government personnel.

Door County Veterans, many former fire fighters, law enforcement, and EMTs stand ready to deploy if professional first responders are overwhelmed, show signs of " burned out", mutual aid agreements are exhausted, or the incident' duration exceeds 14 days. DCVets deploy under the same Incident Command System (ICS) used by all US fire fighters, law enforcement, emergency government, and homeland security personnel.

CIRT' field-training is conducted during major community events. Veteran' posts closest to "ground zero" or most involved in the event are used staffing Incident Command, Safety-Information-Liaison Officers, Chiefs of Operations - Planning - Logistics and Finance, and Staging Area Managers for Life Safety - Communications - Transportation/Housing in place, and Recovery - Reconstruction. Each training exercise begins with a potential "worst-case-scenario" and "mission statement." Follow are a few examples of training operations conducted during 2005 and 2006:
