2.5 million tax free dollars

The Nicollet County Veteran’s Service Office brings $2.5 million tax free dollars into the county each year as it provides services to 3,000 veterans in the county. One of the most useful services offered is the transportation provided for veterans to hospitals. Each year over 800 veterans are provided rides – using two vans. These vans were purchased almost entirely from contributions from the veteran service organizations in the county. Veteran’s Service Director, Hank Sadler has indicated he is seeing an increased number of Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans. “Traumatic brain injuries are the signature of this war,” Sadler said “and some do not know the extent of their injuries until they get back home.” end
