Veterans Resource Page

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) both provide important benefits and services to veterans and their families. If you are looking for help and don't know where to begin, a good place to start is with your local veterans service office.

Local Veterans Service Offices

Veterans Service Offices will actively pursue the rights of veterans and dependents of the United States Armed Forces to receive Department of Veterans Affairs benefits. The VSO schedules appointments for free benefits claims counseling and information and referral assistance to veterans, their dependents and survivors. You can also find other VSO locations here.
