COVID - 19 Update

The Sibley County Veteran Service Office will begin today, March 17th 2020, eliminating face to face contact with Veterans and their family members.  Due to the high risk nature of our clients to the COVID-19, we have made this decision to ensure the safety of all Veterans in Sibley County.   Starting immediately we will begin taking and scheduling phone appointments, as well as corresponding via email.  Please contact 507-237-4090 or email lisak@co.sibley.mn.us for any inquiries or more information.  For information about the COVID-19 Vaccine Plan for Veterans, click HERE or call (612) 467-1100 (toll free at 866-414-5058).

Memorial Day Request
From the Desk of Lisa Klenk, County Veteran Service Officer
 
I want to encourage anyone reading this, in these uncertain times, lets not forget to honor those men and women "who gave all." this Memorial Day. In conjunction with the American Legion National I would encourage all, if possible, to put a candle on their porch as a visible reminder of the price that was paid for our freedom. It can be flame or for safety battery powered. Any candle will do, but if you'd like to be creative, here are some ideas.
 
  • Red Candle to represent the protection of our freedoms
  • White Candle to keep our POWs/MIAs ever in our thoughts and prayers as we await their return home
  • Blue Candle to salute the memories of those who made home but are no longer with us.
"We don't know them all, but we owe them all."
