The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) of Minnesota recently announced that the Winona County Veterans Transportation Program is fully operational. In partnership with Winona County and the Minneapolis VA Medical Center, the DAV of Minnesota has procured two vehicles that are now fully operating and available to provide free rides to the veterans of Winona County and surrounding areas.

“Veterans are picked up and taken to their appointments by one of our dedicated volunteers.” said Kati Carpenter, southeast transportation coordinator for the DAV of Minnesota. “This service is offered free of charge to them, and is available to any veteran with appointments scheduled at or by the Minneapolis or Tomah VA, including the Rochester Community Based Outpatient Clinic. Spouses or caregivers may also ride along in the vehicle if space is available.”

The DAV of MN is in immediate need for additional volunteers to occasionally transport area veterans to their medical appointments. Volunteers are registered through the Minneapolis VA Medical Center and there is no need for the volunteer to be a veteran. The schedule is extremely flexible and drivers can volunteer to be available one day a week or one day a month.
