Every month, Barry Venable, Public Affairs Officer with the St. Cloud VA Medical Center, joins us on WJON  for a program called "Voices for Veterans" to update Veterans and their families on the latest benefits and opportunities that are available to them.

Dr. Jay Collins is Chief of Surgery at the St. Cloud VA Medical Center.

About a year ago, the Ambulatory Surgical Center opened, and Dr. Collins shared some amazing numbers, results, and goals that have been achieved in that short span of time.

Veterans - If you need more information about benefits that are available to you, contact your county Veterans Services Officer.

Dr. Collins also has an open invitation to all Veterans.
