The position of Bowman County Veteran’s Officer is an appointed position.
Bowman County is home to over 200 veterans. Our goal is to ensure that every veteran in the county receives every benefit to which he or she may be entitled from the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), other agencies, and the State of North Dakota.
We are your local resource for dedicated and professional assistance in obtaining federal and state veterans’ benefits. We provide the expertise and advocacy that veterans need to optimize access to benefit programs.
We handle inquires and applications regarding veterans’ health care, compensation, pension, long-term care and other benefits for veterans of all ages. Burial benefit assistance is provided to the survivors of veterans. Widows and widowers of veterans are eligible for some state benefits, and in limited cases, federal benefits. We are here to assist them as well.
Most of the programs veterans utilize are offered through the US Department of Veterans Affairs or the North Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs. We are in contact with these agencies on a regular basis. We work with the National Service Officers of various veterans’ organizations when filing VA benefit claims. We also interact with several other county, state and federal government agencies that provide resources or assistance to veterans.
These services are provided at NO CHARGE to veterans and their dependents. We follow a strict Code of Ethics to ensure your privacy and give you peace of mind.
