Veterans Services

The Veterans Service Office promotes the interest and welfare of veterans, dependents, and their survivors by enhancing their quality of life through counseling, education, benefits assistance, and advocacy. 

We connect Veterans to their benefits by assisting in their interactions with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and hope to make the process easier when applying for benefits like Health Care, Compensation and Pension.
