There’s a program available at the VA hospital in Minneapolis that’s serving an often hidden population — transgender veterans.
Peter Klicker served in the Marines as a woman. Years later, the veteran says he’s finally found the help he’s hoped for.
Klicker is one of 30 transgender veterans getting services at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center. A directive last summer said all transgender veterans are entitled to the same level of care as any other veteran.The clinic now offers hormone therapy and counseling services to transgender veterans.
