Veteran's Agent

DESCRIPTION of SERVICES

The Holbrook Veterans' community consists of veterans from World War II through the current conflicts in Iraq and Afganistan.

The Veteran Services department is mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to administer Chapter 115 state funds to qualified veterans who are in need of temporary assistance. Applications for this process are handled by the Veteran's Service Officer, and are investigated and monitored on a weekly and monthly basis.

The Veteran's Agent assists veterans in correctly completing forms, such as pensions, service connected disabilities, appeals, and death benefits.

The Veteran Services department, with the aid of the Superintendent and employees of the Department of Public Works and the local Boy Scout Troop, maintains all flags, and oversees the annual placement of said flags prior to the annual Memorial Day ceremony.

Mission Statement
