Announcement from Rep. Laura Brod

I just received this email from Representative Laura Brod and I believe it is worth passing along to you!

Hello from St. Paul,

I received this notice the other day, and its news worth passing along.

On Wednesday, February 21, Scott County Veterans Affairs will be hosting a community presentation to discuss issues around the reintegration of soldiers returning from war back into a non-war environment.

Topics will include addressing the needs of returning combat veterans and their families; raising awareness of the reintegration process commonly experienced by returning veterans; warning signs of post-traumatic stress disorder; and adjusting to civilian life after being a combat soldier. Come find out why the hardest part about serving may be coming home.

This presentation was designed for all members of the community, local government officials and staff, veterans organizations, faith based organizations, community groups, fraternal organizations, service providers, employers, police officers, fire fighters, and public health providers.

The meeting will be held at the Savage American Legion Hall, 12375 Princeton Ave. S. in Savage on Wednesday, February 21 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

All members of the media are both welcome and encouraged to attend this event.

Reintegration is all of our responsibility! I hope you can attend if you have the time.
