Our mission is to stand as a voice and an advocate for veterans and their families. We are dedicated to ensuring Iowa veterans, their dependents, and their survivors receive the full measure of county, state, and federal benefits to which they are entitled. To that end, veterans are treated with compassion, integrity, dignity, and accountability.
