Older demographics strain Kewaunee veterans resources

More than 15 percent of Kewaunee County veterans are over the age of 65 and those that have fallen through the cracks have done so for a long time. The other concern is that traditional veterans groups like the VFW and the American Foreign Legion have a demographic makeup in the county that doesn't resonate with younger soldiers according to Veteran Service Officer Robert Stearns.


Stearns says discussions regarding a new organization modeled off of NEW Battalion's Bravo Company are still in the early stages. The hope is that Stearns and Door County VSO Beth Wartella can find a way to bridge the generational divide to help foster a strong cadre of veteran organizations in Door and Kewaunee Counties.
