If you are a Veteran in need of immediate assistance, our V.F.W. Post 101 Service Officer is here to help you. Feel free to call or email.
The VFW maintains a network of volunteer Service Officers that begins at the post level. The Service Officer's primary responsibility is to assist and educate members of the post about federal and state benefits earned through their military service. The Service Officer is the go-to person for information and assistance, with resources available concerning your benefits.
Our Service Officer, Danielle DePaolis, is happy to help you get in touch with the right contacts to get started on your claims process.
In order to set up a "safety net" for health care, we urge all Veterans to go to the Colorado Springs VA Clinic and apply. You will need a copy of your DD 214 or retirement orders and fill out the application paperwork.
For those service members returning as OIF/OND/OEF Veterans, please report to the VA Clinic ASAP. You have 5 years free medical care from the time you return. All you need is a DD 214 or orders showing you were deployed.
