The New Year is here and the Minnesota Department of Veteran Affairs (MDVA) has many programs and projects that are in full stride all over the state. In 2015 MDVA saw great results in many of the more diverse areas of the Veteran community such as Women Veterans, Tribal Veterans, and Homeless Veterans. The individuals who make up these groups raised their hands to serve our country, and thus deserve access to support services and programs they have earned. A few achievements are listed below; MDVA encourages all Veterans and their families to continually follow the events and opportunities listed on MinnesotaVeteran.org to bring an even bigger presence of diversity and prosperity into 2016.
Have you tapped into your personal cornucopia of Veteran federal benefits? These are benefits that you’ve earned for your military service.
Your Minnesota County Veterans Service Officer (CVSO) is the first person you should contact to find out if you or your family is qualified for local, state and federal Veterans' benefits. CVSOs work with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs and Veterans Service Organizations to make sure you get all the Veteran benefits you are eligible for.
