Veterans Service Officer (VSO)

 

Accredited American Legion Service Officers

DD-214Accredited 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.

Veterans Benefit Claims

Post Service Officer GuideVeterans need not be alone in their battles for benefits and medical care. Veterans are often forced to wage war against the paperwork and bureaucracy of government in order to get medical care or benefits. Here's some good news: American Legion Service Officers offer free advice and guidance for veterans who need to deal with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Important documents that may be needed to support a VA disability claim. Please have the following ready when you make your call to discuss VA benefits:

*For Service To Your Country has been discontinued and a replacement has not been announced.

*** Separating personnel should ensure that all of the information (including awards, overseas time, campaigns, RE code, etc.) on the DD 214 is correct before signing. Uncorrected errors may cause problems in the future when applying for VA and other benefits.
