Veteran’s Services of Carteret County
The Veterans Services Officer (VSO) and staff assist the County’s veterans and their families in understanding and obtaining the VA benefits they have earned. This may include submitting claims for disability compensation or pension, enrolling in the health care system, and applying for entitlements such as home loan eligibility and educational benefits.
The VSO strives to keep the County’s 9,000+ veterans informed of opportunities and changes to the VA rules with a monthly newspaper column, as well as periodic news releases and radio and TV spots. This office is represented on the Aging Planning Board, Safety Wellness Committee, and the Military Affairs Committee to keep open lines of communication for a better-informed population. VA pamphlets and forms are available in this office.
Veterans’ organizations are supported by the VSO through participation on the Carteret County Veterans Council, the coordinating body and sponsor of veteran events. The two major events each year are the Memorial Day Ceremony and the Veterans Day Parade. Our Mission: Provide compassionate and professional services for Carteret County’s veterans and family members. Inform those who have faithfully served our country in uniform of available veterans programs. Aid in the understanding of veterans programs. Assist in the application process for benefits.
