What is the Veterans Service Office?

The Sonoma County Veterans Service Office was established by the Board of Supervisors in 1944 with the mandate of assisting every veteran of any war of the Unites States. Today the VSO serves all veterans and their dependents, helping to present and pursue any claim against the Department of Veterans Affairs. Every effort is made to establish the right of veterans and dependents to any privilege, preference, care or compensation provided by the Federal or State government.

The Sonoma County Veterans Service Office provides assistance in completion of claims forms, help with obtaining documents and other evidence necessary to support claims and preparation of appeals of adverse decisions. Information about and referral to other service providers and programs is also provided.
