Minnesota state outline with US Flag insideSt. Paul – Minnesota veterans now have a “One Stop Web site” for information about education, medical, employment, and other benefits.

The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs announced that the new site features links and information from sources that provide goods and services to veterans and their families. The various programs span dozens of agencies across state, federal and local governments as well as private and non-profit organizations.

“We are committed to ensuring that veterans, their dependents and survivors receive the full measure of benefits and services to which they are entitled,” said Clark Dyrud, Commissioner of Veterans Affairs. “This new Web site consolidates important information geared toward helping veterans in one easy to find location.”

Information concerning military retirement, state and federal benefits, as well as education and pending legislation are just a few topics that can be found on this new site.

Governor Pawlenty proposed the Veterans One Stop Website as part of his comprehensive military and veterans support legislative package earlier this year.
