Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation VA&R

VA&R Committee

The purpose of the Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation (VA&R) Committee is to formulate and recommend to the Department Executive Committee of The American Legion Department of Minnesota policies, plans, and programs as they concern Minnesota veterans. Areas of oversight include physical and vocational rehabilitation, education, social and economic readjustment, entitlement to compensation and pension, and the support of their dependents and survivors.

VA&R Committee Site Visits

We believe that veterans deserve access to information.  The American Legion Dept. of MN shares the results of site visits performed at facilities in Minnesota where veterans are cared for. Annual site visits are performed by the Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation Committee.  Feel free to download and read the reports for the current American Legion year below.
