Good morning everyone,
Due to the fact that our demographic of patrons in Waseca Countyis predominantly 65 and older, to help prevent the possible infection and spread of the COVID-19 virus, Veteran Services will be making the following changes to daily practices.
1. Veteran Services will be taking phone appointments only until April 1st.
2. We will be encouraging all van riders to reschedule appointments.
3. The Memorial Plaques that will be put up for memorial day have been sent out to be engraved, and there for we will not be accepting applications until April 1st.
With all that said we do understand that there are veterans that have very specific, and difficult to schedule appts, we will work with them to help facilitate transportation. There are some that have treatments that are required to treat illness that would otherwise kill them(i.e. cancer treatments,dialysis, ect). We will work with them as well to help facilitate transportation.
The VA is currently screening patients at the door and only have one entrance open. We do not want to put anyone at risk however we also understand that medical treatment is just as important.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding during this time.
Many Veterans, and their dependents, are unaware of the benefits that they are entitled to due to their service to their country. Here in Waseca County we are making it our mission to ensure that you have every resource available to you to both know your benefits and use them. The following hyperlinks below will send you to information that is commonly asked about. However, there is so much more information out there. I encourage you to call and or stop in and meet your Veterans Service Officer! Get to know your Benefits!
