DULUTH, MN — Veterans in the Twin Ports had a one stop shop for services at Bayfront Park on Friday.

The Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans hosted its second annual Duluth Stand Down for Veterans.

60 different service providers were all in one place, offering help for things like signing up for VA care, housing assistance, filing for disability, going back to school and even getting a haircut.

Organizers say the goal is to connect vets to the services they need and deserve.

“We want veterans to know that there are these programs out there for them. A lot of these services they’ve earned. Just wearing the uniform, they’ve earned them. So they’re not free. They’ve already paid the price,” says Paul Pederson, the Senior Case Manager for MACV Duluth.

Organizers say any veteran who missed Friday’s event but needs help should call 211 in order to be referred to those services.
