Veterans Service Office

We support veterans with VA benefit services.

Our service officers have been trained by the VA. Chapter 975’s Veterans Service Office is located at: 315 Oak Street, Kingman, AZ 86401.  Telephone 928-377-1101. The Veterans Center hours are 8am-4pm Tuesday through Friday.  Meetings are the 4th Thursday of every month except November and December, when the meetings are moved up a week because of the holidays. Meetings start at 6 p.m. SERVICE OFFICERS: We are looking for additional service officers so we can assist more veterans with their deserved benefits from the VA. If you are able to donate some time to this worthy venture, you will be sent for training.

 

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

For many Veterans, memories of their wartime experiences can still be upsetting long after they served in combat. If you are an older Veteran, you may have served many years ago, but your military experience can still affect your life today.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) may occur anytime the head is shaken or hit, causing “concussion” or “closed head injury”. Unfortunately, TBI has become a “signature wound” of the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Suicide

How do I know if I am suicidal?

Have you been thinking that you would be better off dead? Do you wish you could go to sleep and not wake up? Perhaps you have been planning how you would end your life or making preparations for when you’re not here.

Homelessness

The VA is committed to ending homelessness among veterans.

Veterans who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless can call or visit their local VA Medical Center or Community Resource and Referral Center where VA staff are ready to help.
