The Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce is organizing an effort to count veterans and military members and their families in the 2020 census.
Veterans are among the “hard-to-count” groups for the once-a-decade U.S. Census.
It’s important to count veterans so programs ranging from VA home loans and G.I. Bill educational benefits to job training and VA health care are properly funded.
