MN Veterans Affairs to Launch Statewide Town Hall Tour

Visits will Highlight Improved Minnesota GI Bill and Other Key Accomplishments Under Governor Dayton that Will Benefit Veterans and Their Families

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Next week Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) leadership will travel to eight Minnesota communities to meet with citizens and members of the Minnesota Veterans Community. The town hall tour is focused on updating local officials, community leaders, and Veteran’s organizations about recent reforms passed under Governor Dayton’s leadership, like the improved Minnesota GI Bill that will benefit Minnesota Veterans and their families. The MDVA will also ask citizens to bring new ideas for how the Department can continue to support Veterans and their families.

“From expanding the Minnesota GI Bill to ensuring all Minnesota Veterans have access to the education, services and training they need – we have made key reforms to support our Veterans and their families,” said MDVA Commissioner Larry Shellito. “We look forward to meeting with citizens and Veterans across Minnesota to discuss these reforms and hear more about how we can continue to support our Minnesota men and women in uniform.”
