Veteran Services


The Minnesota legislature recognized after World War II the need for a veterans service Officer and a law was passed, which permits each county board to establish a county veterans service office.

Terms of Service

A service officer is appointed by the County Board of Commissioners for a four year term and he / she may be reappointed. The office procedures and routine are under the supervision of the Commissioner of the Minnesota State Department of Veterans Affairs.
