MN Vets: Home & Hope


In a partnership with Twin Cities Public Television (tpt), the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs went behind the scenes to capture the horrors of battle still fresh for a WWII Veteran, a roundtable where services members from Vietnam find power in numbers, a soldier’s readjustment to life at home after multiple deployments, and the value of educational benefits. Panel discussions with County Veterans Service Officers, students and state and community leaders provide feedback and context during this hour-long program.

Asking for help can be difficult, and the VA estimates that 60% of Veterans never apply for the benefits they have earned, including education, health benefits, counseling and much more. The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs is committed to bridging that gap and connecting Veterans and families with important state, federal and community-based programs and services.
