To the editor:


John Jasinski has a vision for a Greater Minnesota to include veterans benefits. As a U.S. Navy Veteran, John knows firsthand how the GI bill can help returning service personnel further their education resulting in better opportunities for growth in the job market.

John shares the view that all Americans can be thankful we have an all-volunteer military that is willing to protect our borders on the home front as well as face difficult challenges abroad.


He knows when the troops come back to Minnesota we need to have adequate jobs, affordable housing and good medical benefits waiting for them in thanks for their sacrifices in protecting our country.


John also knows that exempting veterans pensions from Minnesota income tax is the right thing to do for those who have faithfully served our country in the military. John Jasinski for Senate on Nov. 8.
