Veteran’s Wall Application


The Union County Veterans Service Officer assists veterans, their family members, and survivors in obtaining federal and state veterans’ benefits they have earned through their military service. Although we cannot adjudicate claims, we can provide advice about the various programs and eligibility requirements and assist in completing the forms and other correspondence necessary to file a claim or an appeal. We may also assist in resolving problems and getting answers to questions about the laws and regulations that govern veterans’ benefits. Our office is funded and operated by Union County Government and there is no charge for our services.
