Veterans benefit programs are important to millions of Americans. Approximately one-third of the U.S. population, or twenty-six million veterans and forty-eight million family members are potentially eligible for federal veterans benefits.

The Veterans Service Officers play an important role in a national veterans advocacy network. They work in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA) staff to secure clients benefits. The County Veterans Service Officers are often the initial contact for veterans in the community. Therefore, it is important that their first contact be a favorable one.

  • Paralyzed Veterans of America

  • Amvets

  • Polish Legion of American Veterans

  • Vietnam Veterans of America
