They’ve been to places most Americans will never see, under conditions no one wants to think about, in countries with names most people cannot spell. Now, more than half of the country’s nearly 22 million living veterans are receiving at least one benefit or service guaranteed to them because of their service to the nation — an increase of more than 1 million veterans over four years, said Meagan Lutz, public affairs specialist for the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs in Washington, D.C.
All things must come to an end — war included. When the time comes for veterans to return to American soil from Iraq and Afghanistan, many have sought to recapture a sense of normalcy — as well as their dreams — through the North Dakota University System, using the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill to make it all possible.
Driving down First Street East in Dickinson, nothing at first glance seemed amiss Tuesday morning — workers rushed through crosswalks in suits and heels just before 8 a.m. like they do every weekday morning, as the American flag at the U.S. Post Office waved above the traffic. Dozens of Old Glory’s hanging on street poles nearby only days before were gone, a reminder that Memorial Day was over and it was back to the daily grind.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Navajo Code Talkers are legendary. Then there was Cpl. Ira Hamilton Hayes, the Pima Indian who became a symbol of courage and patriotism when he and his fellow Marines raised the flag over Iwo Jima in 1945.
DEVILS LAKE — The Dakota Bull Session, an annual gathering of veterans to share stories of World War II, the Korean War and other military experiences for the past 23 years in Devils Lake, will not reconvene this spring.
MIDLAND, Texas — A parade float that collided with a freight train, killing four military veterans, had crossed onto railroad tracks even though warning signals were going off, investigators said Saturday.
Retired sergeant major Eugene D. Robinson, Dickinson, knows what it means to put your life on the line. He served as a U.S. Navy sailor during the Korean Conflict, and more recently rescued a girl at risk of drowning while on duty with the National Guard.
DENVER (AP) — Exasperated veterans who work part-time for the Veterans Administration while attending college say their paychecks are sometimes weeks late, leaving them in trouble with bill collectors or having to borrow money to avoid eviction.
Keli Berglund, left, helps veteran Roy Jenkins and his wife, Faye, select items of surplus military clothing during the Project Service Connect/Veterans Stand Down event on Thursday morning at the Dickinson Recreation Center. Veterans were introduced to a wide variety of community services available to them. Jenkins, who served in the Army from 1972-75, and his wife recently moved to Dickinson from Wyoming.
