Our committee was formed to help and support the needs of Veterans in our local area. All our committee members are volunteers.

Mission Statement

To provide, our fellow veterans the highest level of assistance possible. To provide answers to their questions or, at the very least, a referral to someone that has the answer.

We advise our local leaders with needs of the Vets in our local area, which include the areas of Eastern Kern, Inyo and parts of San Bernardino.
