Veterans Service Agency

March 7, 2019

What: Yorktown veterans are an important piece of our community.  Under New York State Law municipalities have the ability to create a Veterans Service Agency.  The Yorktown Veterans Service Agency will provide certified VA benefits counselors to assist local veterans in receiving the benefits they have rightfully earned through their defense of our nation and freedoms.  


Why: Nationally the Department of Veterans Affairs has been undergoing an overhaul of how it delivers services.  Locally, we can be doing our part by establishing a specific department within town government to assist our local veterans and ensure they are receiving the benefits they have earned through their service to our nation.


How: Establishing an official Yorktown Veterans Service Agency can be accomplished legislatively.
