Senator Rarick invites veterans to attend 2019 Duluth ‘Stand Down for Veterans’ event for access to free support services and assistance

On August 23, the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans will be hosting the 2019 “Duluth Stand Down for Veterans” at Duluth Bayfront Festival Park. Veterans will have access to a number of no-cost services, such as meals, legal assistance, and mental health and housing support. The event will last from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Veterans should bring their DD214 or VA ID card for faster registration.

“This is an amazing opportunity,” said Sen. Jason Rarick (R-Pine City). “It can be complicated, time consuming, and expensive for veterans to get answers to the issues they are facing. MAC-V does an incredible job of meeting veterans where they are and providing simple, cost-free assistance. I hope every veteran in our area will consider checking out this event.”
