The veterans service officer has an understanding of the problems that confront veterans, widows, widowers and their children. I know the extent, the meaning, and the application of federal veterans laws (statutes and regulations) passed in the interest of veterans and their dependents.

We assist in filing initial federal VA claims for compensation, pension and other benefits.
