Commission on Veterans Affairs


About the Commission

Wayne Miller , Chair  
Bob Koffman, Vice-Chair

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 does not provide services. The Commission maintains a Veterans Directory online that include all the services offered by the federal state and local government and non-profit agencies -
