Hamilton County’s Veteran Service Officer (VSO) serves the County’s 23,000-plus veterans, as well as Northwest Georgia and Northeast Alabama VA beneficiaries.
The VSO’s mission falls into two basic tasks: informing veterans and their families about veterans’ benefits, and directly assisting and advising veterans and their families in securing the federal and state benefits to which they are entitled. The VSO is accredited by the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs to represent seven Veteran Service Organizations. These organizations include the following: Tennessee Dept. of Veterans Service, Georgia Dept. of Veterans Service, The American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Ex-prisoners of War, The American Red Cross, The Fleet Reserve Association, and The Retired Enlisted Association.
