Taking Care Of Veterans
The Veteran's Service Office provides assistance to veterans on military issues and arranges medical assistance and funerals for veterans. The Office serves approximately 3,000 veterans and dependents. Transportation is available to transport veterans to hospitals in Murfreesboro and Nashville.
This Office promotes close relationships with the local veteran organizations, including the United Veterans of Lincoln County. It is estimated that veterans input $10 million dollars per year to the local economy.
The Veterans Services Office assists veterans and their dependents with applications for compensation, pensions, hospitalization and other benefits through an intake process that includes information and referral services. The Veterans Services Office works with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other nationally chartered veterans service organizations to ensure that veterans, their dependents, and survivors receive their richly deserved entitlements.
