Note: Veteran Service Officers, VSO's, are highly trained in all Veterans' benefits. There is never a charge for the services of a VSO! They are certified to represent the Veteran in the VA benefits process. Their scope includes county, state and federal authorized Veteran benefits. They will also assist in the completion of forms, their submission and follow-up. Delaware County has 3 on staff. They are a wonderful resource. Other PA counties also have Departments of Veteran Affairs with highly trained staff.

Summary: Fortunately, there are an abundance of helpful resources for Veterans. The challenge is matching the Veteran's/your needs quickly with the best source of assistance. For our Veterans, the VSO, Veteran Service Officer, is often an excellent place to start for resources. Governor Wolf recently established a coordinated data base that provides all PA agencies with the various support available from all other PA agencies throughout Pennsylvania. If you like, you can contact our Service Officer and provide Claude with the general need and he can arrange for the VSO to contact you directly or refer you to another source of assistance. No Veteran needs to go without help.
