Kanabec County Veteran Services provides professional, caring and quality assistance to veterans and their dependents. We assist in obtaining benefits through local, County, State and Federal programs. As advocates we work with the US Department of Veterans Affairs, MN Department of Veterans Affairs and nationally chartered service organizations to ensure our veterans and dependents receive the benefits they have earned.
Our County Veteran Service Officer attends the most current trainings on the extent and meaning of new laws passed by the U.S. Congress in the interests of veterans and dependents.
