Veterans Service Office Local Services

At our office we can assist Veterans in a variety of other ways, please see below.

Finding a Veterans Records

If a Veteran or loved ones cannot find your discharge papers or military records, please come to us for assistance. We will need as much information as possible to be able to find the records so please make sure you have the following information: 

  • The Veterans name, DoB and SSN 

  • The Veterans branch of service and (approximate) dates of service.  

If you are acting on behalf of a veteran, or if the veteran has passed, we will need to see proof confirming this before any information or documents can be handed over.  

 

Veterans Pantry

If you are looking for ways to help Veterans in your area, please consider donating items to our food pantry. We are also always on the lookout for lightly used coats that we can give out to Veterans in need in the local area. Please help out if you can.

To add a dependent, complete a VA 21-686c at the Pottawattamie County Veteran Affairs office, or submit the form using EBenefits online.
