VSO - County Veteran Service Office

Veterans County Service Office

 

 

The Veterans County Service Office assists veterans and their family members in obtaining federal and state benefits they have earned through their military service. Our office is funded and operated both by Tom Green County and the Texas Veterans Commission. There is no charge for our services. 

Although we are not part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and do not adjudicate claims, we can provide guidance and referrals about various programs and eligibility requirements. Our office can assist in completing VA forms and other correspondence necessary in the claim or appeal process.
