How Can We Help You?

​Every county in Oregon has a Veteran Services Office with federally accredited and state-certified veteran service officers. These VSOs provide benefits counseling, represent and advocate for veterans, their dependents and survivors in obtaining benefits to which they are entitled. 

VSOs are trained and experienced in navigating the federal VA process to ensure claims are submitted accurately and efficiently, for no fee.

hISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 through Oct. 15), the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs will be sharing stories from the state’s and nation’s military and cultural history, including profiling individual Hispanic American veterans and family members.

There are an estimated 560,000 Hispanic Americans living in Oregon today — and more than 60 million — across the United States. They represent a rich and diverse cultural heritage — as well as a proud history of service in our nation’s military — dating to some of our earliest conflicts.
