VETERANS SERVICE OFFICER
A veterans service officer (VSO) is an individual who advocates for veterans benefits. 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. The American Legion Post 37 of the Department of Virginia currently has one accredited and one certified Service officer. We hold claim clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00am - 4:00pm.
