DAV Minnesota E-News April 7, 2017

On Tuesday April 4, Minneapolis Chapter 1 celebrated their 95th anniversary! Chapter 1 was initially chartered in 1922 and acted as the DAV Department of MN. We would like to congratulate Chapter 1 and thank them for 95 years of dedicated service and making a positive impact to their community, and Minnesota veterans and their families.

Welcome to our New HSC's!

The Saint Cloud Transportation Coordinator, Stephanie Zeimetz, grew up in central Minnesota graduating from Holdingford High School. She spent 6 years living in Oklahoma Ft. Sill with her family before returning back to the area. During that time she volunteered with the H-26 FA 214th Fires Brigade FRG as Treasurer and received a Presidential Volunteer Award as well as a Molly Pitcher Award in 2012. She has numerous family members currently in the military including her twin brother with the United States Air Force and many family members previously in the military. Stephanie started with DAV in August 2016 after working four years doing medical billing and is grateful to once again work with Veterans. In her spare time she spends time with her three kids (two boys and a girl), is an avid photographer, and enjoys gardening and bowling.
Luke Johnson started working with the DAV in January of 2017. He grew up in Center City, Minnesota and developed a love for the outdoors and spent his summers fishing, camping, hiking and playing baseball. He joined the Army as a medic and spent his time at Fort Lewis, Washington. He now shares his love of the outdoors with his wife Sophia and their two sons Fox and Teddy.  

Luke has replaced our long time HSC/DSO Babette Blumenauer, we thank her for her years of dedicated service to the DAV!
