Dr. Vogel, president of District 1 of the Michigan Chiropractic Society, states that, "Many of our patients, friends, and families are serving in the Middle East, and we're trying to help them. Many chiropractic offices are enthusiastic and will carry the buttons."

Buttons are available by mailing a self-addressed, stamped envelope and $1 to Vogel Enterprises, 15300 East 10 Mile Road, East Detroit, Michigan, 48021, or phone (313) 774-2711.
