Thank you, veterans

Dear Neighbors,

Veterans Day is this Friday, November 11th. Let us join together to express our deep gratitude to all our veterans and their families for the service and sacrifices they have made on our behalf.

Below are a few links with information veterans may find valuable. Please forward this information to anyone you think would find it beneficial.

Serving You Better Survey:

To better serve veterans and their families, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) is seeking feedback on the use of their services. Veterans, current service members, and their families are encouraged to participate in a “Serving You Better” survey at www.MinnesotaVeteran.org.

Linkage Line for Minnesota Veterans, LinkVet:

LinkVet simplifies the identification of services for veterans and their families. During business hours, trained MDVA staff will provide information on veterans’ benefits, healthcare, education, and reintegration. The line will roll to Crisis Connection counselors for 24-hour, seven days a week coverage (including holidays) for immediate crisis intervention and psychological counseling. For more information on LinkVet, click here or call 1-888-546-5838.
