Department Service Office

Accredited American Legion Service Officers are specially trained to provide expert assistance, free of charge, to veterans and their families. While the majority of a service officer's work involves application for VA disability benefits, these compassionate professionals also provide information, referrals and resources on education, employment and business, death benefits and other important topics.

It is no secret that far too many military veterans and their families struggle to get by.
This is especially true after coming home from deployment, after having been
discharged from duty, or if they have been severely injured.
