The staff of the Burleigh County Veterans Service Office is dedicated to providing the best possible service for veterans and their families. The office is not part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). As county employees, we are advocates for clients who seek benefits from the VA and other agencies. We also have mutually supporting relationships with local Veterans Service Organizations. We are privileged to serve America's veterans and are proud to be part of a vibrant veterans community.
Veterans Service Officers have been assisting Burleigh County veterans since World War Two.
