“Our nation’s commitment is to care for him who born the battle and for his widow and the orphan.” – President Abraham Lincoln

  • Education and training
  • Filing claims for disability pension, dependency, and indemnity compensation
  • Guaranty home loans
  • And other concerns
The office works closely with the Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans’ Affairs Medical Center, and both veterans’ cemeteries in Shelby County.
