Numerous veterans and community members came out this morning to visit, listen to speakers and tour a new veterans clinic in Dickinson.

Sen. Kent Conrad helped open the new U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs community-based outpatient clinic this morning. The senator cut the ceremonial ribbon and called the new 3,000 square-foot facility a step toward better health care for North Dakota's rural veterans.

"Today is a culmination of months of hard work to ensure our veterans continue to have access to quality health care," he said. "We fought for years to bring a clinic to Dickinson in order to dramatically reduce driving distances and wait times for veterans living in rural areas, and this new contract and new building will ensure our veterans have easy access to the vital care they need and deserve."
