Welcome To Your VSO

Fellow Veterans, 

I am in the office three days a week and am here to help you deal with the VA, be it signing up for VA medical care (give me a call, most veterans are eligible), or to help file a disability claim or an appeal. We can also talk about your benefits and we take great pleasure in helping widows and other family members. 

So give me a call and let's get to work. 

Have a good day,

Veteran Property Tax Exemptions
Comrades, it's time to think about state property tax exemptions for those who qualify. The state offers a 50% exemption off the first $200,000 of valuation.  

Those who qualify are: 
- Veterans with a 100% disability rating.
- Surviving spouses of veterans who have had this exemption in the past.
- Spouses of those who died on active duty or of a service-connected disability. 

There are residency and ownership requirements, so call me for more information or to get an application. Applicaitons have to be postmarked before July 1. 


The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.
