Veterans services returns to Douglas County

Sraff Reports

The Nevada Department of Veterans Services Veterans Outreach ROVER Program will visit the Douglas County Senior Center so veterans and family members will be able to meet with a veterans service officer to learn about benefits and services they may be eligible for but unaware of.

This visit is by appointment only 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Jan. 28 at the Douglas County Senior Center, 2300 Meadow Lane.

Due to response, walk-in appointments cannot be seen.

“Appointments in Douglas County fill up quickly and we are no longer able to see walk-ins at this time due to the level of response,” says program supervisor, Scott Fincher. “With help from the community, the word has been getting out and due to the overflow of walk-ins, we’ve had to make the change to by appointment only in Douglas County, and we are making future dates known so appointments can be made in advance.”

To schedule an advanced appointment for any date, contact Pamela (775) 688-1653 or Barbara at (775) 321-4880.

Veterans are advised to bring a copy of their DD-214 discharge document, current VA paperwork, medical information and banking account information. If the claim involves dependants, bring birth certificates, current and prior marriage certificates, divorce decrees, and social security numbers.

The ROVER Program is funded by donations to the veterans gift account that is supported by the Nevada veterans license plate program. With mission-focused employees, NOVS is responsible for the administration of two state veterans memorial cemeteries, a state veterans home, and a state-wide veterans service officer program. NOVS is instrumental in connecting Nevada’s veterans and their families with benefits and assistance from both the state and federal government.
