Veterans Service Office hosts town hall Wednesday

Military veterans looking for information, or who may have questions about their eligibility for certain benefits, will have an opportunity this month to meet and talk with a variety of experts. The St. Louis County Veterans Service Office is hosting a town hall meetings for veterans Wednesday, May 25, 9 a.m. to noon at Duluth American Legion, 5814 Grand Ave.

The meeting will include representatives from the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs, Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV), the Twin Ports Outpatient Clinic, and the Silver Bay Veterans Home, plus staff from the offices of Rep. Rick Nolan and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Transportation Coordinator.  Additionally, there will be representatives available to talk about education, jobs and vocation rehabilitation.

"We want to make it as easy as possible for veterans to learn about the benefits they've earned, and so we try to get as many resources as we can and people with answers in one place at one time," said Sherry Rodriguez, Director of the St. Louis County Veterans Service Office.
