Veterans wanted to fill state commission

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs is seeking veterans to apply for two member-at-large positions on the State Veterans Commission.

“Pennsylvania boasts the fourth largest veteran population in the nation and members of the State Veterans Commission play a vital role in advocating for our commonwealth’s veterans,” said Maj. Gen. Anthony Carrelli, Pennsylvania’s adjutant general and head of the DMVA. “Commission members have first-hand knowledge of the issues veterans are facing throughout our communities and can provide valuable suggestions for improving programs, services and supporting veteran-focused legislation.”

At-large members serve a four-year term.

Deadline for submission is Oct. 23 at 4 p.m. All submissions are to be done by email.

The application and more information about the member-at-large position are available at
