The office is a full-service agency, eliminating the need for veterans to travel to other locations to apply for benefits or to receive information and assistance regarding programs and services.
The Veterans Services Office maintains a close relationship with other state and county veterans organizations and maintains up-to-date information through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
