In 2017, 5,400 veterans were registered with the St. Croix County Veteran Services Officer (CVSO). There will be more veterans in years to come, and they will be an aging population.
Unfortunately, the CVSO is currently functioning with limited staff.
What more could be done to support our veterans?
There is an identified need for transportation, which would enable our veterans to reach the VA Hospital in Minneapolis on a regular basis.
I would like to explore ways the County can help support this need and ensure veterans can access the care they require.
