Veterans


The Veterans Office is once again open, but we are implementing a "by appointment only" system and will no longer accept walk ins due to Covid-19. Our Van service is now available with strict two (2) rider limits and mandatory face covering for the entirety of the time spent in the van as another safety precaution no food will be allowed under normal circumstances and drinks are only allowed if they are in a covered container. To schedule an appointment with a VSO or a medical ride please call our office at the number listed below.

 

*Friendly Reminder*

 

MINNEAPOLIS appointments should be scheduled on ODD DAYS

ST. CLOUD appointments should be scheduled on EVEN DAYS

  


WHAT WE DO:

The Douglas County Veteran Services Office assist veterans and their dependents to attain benefits from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and the Minnesota Department of Veteran Affairs. Such benefits include applying for service connected disability compensation, Non-service connected pension, Dental and Optical vouchers for both qualified veterans and their spouses, burial benefits for qualified veterans dependents and survivors pension for the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran. We also assist with transportation to and from the Minneapolis, St. Cloud and Fargo VA medical facilities with paid part time drivers on staff. (The Fargo van trips will be made on a first come first serve basis with Minneapolis and St. Cloud having priority.) We can assist with many other benefits that are not named above please stop in to visit and see what benefits either yourself or a veteran family member may be entitled to. Our office staff currently consists of Jake Turner and Rhonda Fuchs, both are VSO’s and fully accredited with multiple organizations as well as Leah Huss who fills the office support role. If you have any questions comments or concerns regarding veterans services please contact us at the information listed below.
