Commission on Veterans Affairs

Montgomery County Thanks Our Veterans and Their Families - Honor Their Service, Strengthen Our Community


The Montgomery County Commission on Veterans Affairs was established by County legislation in 2008 with the goal of the Commission to provide advice to the Executive and Council on the status of programs and services related to the needs of Veterans.  Veterans have made an important contribution to the community by their service in the Armed Forces of this Nation, and Montgomery County is committed to showing its commitment and support for all veterans and their families.

 

The Commission is composed of sixteen voting members and one non-voting member who serve in a volunteer capacity.  Members are appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Council. The Commission includes:

  • Eight (8) Veterans who are a member of a veterans group
  • Four (4) General Public
  • Four (4) Ex-Officio Members (Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Economic Development, The Office of the County Executive, and Montgomery College)
  • One (1) Non-Voting Congressional Representative

Current Chair and Vice-Chair - 2016

Veterans Network Directory  -  A directory of providers, agencies, businesses and advocacy organizations that offer local, state and national resources for veterans, military service members, and their families.  Montgomery County does not endorse or assume responsibility for any product, method, service or treatment listed in this resource directory that is not a County program.

Serving Together  -  A collection of local-community based resources for veterans, service members, including Guardsmen and Reservists, and their families in Montgomery County. Their goal is to provide clear guidance for local members of the military on how they can access the care and support they need.
