Burgum to sign proclamation Monday during celebration to mark adoption of Patriots’ Day holiday in North Dakota

BISMARCK, N.D. (April 11, 2019) – Sponsors and supporters of a recently signed bill that makes North Dakota the fifth state to observe Patriots’ Day as an official state holiday will hold a celebration Monday at the Capitol in Bismarck, with Gov. Doug Burgum signing a proclamation.

North Dakota veterans with a 50 percent or greater, service-related disability and former POWs are eligible for a free lifetime permit. All other North Dakota veterans with service related disabilities are eligible to receive an annual permit for $28. This program is available to North Dakota residents only, with Report of Benefit letter from the VA, or a North Dakota DAV/POW license plate.

June 22nd marks the 75th Anniversary of the GI Bill, and VA wants you – all Veterans, service members, and your families from all generations – to share your story of how the GI bill has made a difference in your lives.

Because the GI Bill has impacted the lives of millions of Veterans, we would like the states/counties to assist us in having Veterans share their GI Bill Story.
