Veteran retiring from Veterans' Service Office

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- A staple of the Eau Claire County Veterans' Service Office is retiring.

Clif Sorenson is a Vietnam war veteran who has been with the office for 14 years, but has worked in Veterans Affairs since 1975.

He had been away from Eau Claire for 25 years before moving back and working at the office in the Eau Claire County Courthouse.
Sorenson says it has been a joy working with veterans, and decided long ago that he wanted to work on the behalf of people.

"It was quite an experience, it was a year away from my family, but a year of service and a year of really growing up and learning that there are different aspects of life, and so I enjoyed the military very much," Sorenson said.

There will also be a get-together for Sorenson at the American Legion on July 13th from one to five p.m. His last day is July 7th.
