Your CVSO is a local Veteran who has a compassionate understanding of the problems which confront Veterans, widows, widowers, and children. The County Veterans Service Officers have been trained and certified by the state to understand the extent, meaning and the application of laws that have been passed by the U.S, Congress in the interests of Veterans and their dependents. Their certification will assist you in dealing with the red tape when it comes to getting you your deserved compensation. The CVSO will apply their specialized knowledge in the best way suited to the needs of every individual Veteran or their beneficiary who calls or comes to the office for assistance. They have all the forms and necessary information to assist you in obtaining services, benefits and compensation due to you from the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs. They are your liaison for all veteran issues.
