Mission Statement

The primary objective of the Division of Veterans Services is to ensure that our county veterans and their families receive the maximum benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs and other agencies at all levels of government.

The benefits that our veterans and families may be entitled to are not automatic; they must apply for them. A professional analysis on a personalized basis is the best assurance that they will receive each benefit earned from the veteran's Honorable Service to our country.
