The Registry is a statewide database of publicly available information about Minnesota’s veterans.  A qualified veteran is anyone who ever served or is serving in the US military and was either born in Minnesota or has lived in Minnesota. 

You can search the Registry to learn more about a veteran's service to state and nation.

You can change an entry in the database to make corrections or add new information.  Use the online form below to make changes.  The information you enter in the right-hand boxes will replace the earlier information entered for that field. It will be reviewed before posting, however.

Note: Make sure you have the information you need before starting this process.  If you exit the page before clicking "Submit," the data you entered may be lost.
