What's New

***Veterans and spouses: A reminder that the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs sponsors a dental and optical program that is based upon household income and assets. If you qualify you may use your local private provider. The veteran and/or spouse may also be eligible for a one time "Special Needs" Grant. Contact this office for details.


Camp Lejeune veterans and family members: VA has established a presumption of service connection for eight conditions associated with exposure to contaminants in the water supply at Camp Lejeune. The rule became effective March 14, 2017. The eight presumptive diseases are:
