Wadena County's 1,228 veterans received more than $7 million in state and federal VA benefits in 2008, according to a recently released report from the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs.


David Anderson, the county's veterans services officer, is pleased with the total number, which amounts to $5,739 per veteran, but would like to see it even higher. Not all veterans in the county use the services, he said.
