The Door County Veterans Service Office provides all veterans of Door County and their families with a single, comprehensive, and seamless access point to the services and benefits which they have earned from both the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA). Additionally, we strive to foster partnerships with and among veterans organizations and other concerned parties, to leverage all available resources to enhance the quality of life and public recognition for our veterans.

We initiate applications for veterans and their dependents for a wide array of benefits including:

  • Compensation and pension.
  • Death benefits, graves registration, and headstone/grave markers.
  • Medical and education grants.
  • VA healthcare.
  • Transportation eligibility for veterans to and from VA medical appointments at Milwaukee, Cleveland, Tomah, Appleton, and Green Bay hospitals and clinics.
  • GI Bill entitlements.
  • Correction of military records.
  • Insurance benefits and claims assistance.
  • Administering Veterans Service Commission aid.
  • Administering Veterans Service Council aid.
  • Veteran residency and Wisconsin VA nursing home eligibility.
  • Recording of DD–214 discharge documents.
  • Dependents Education Assistance  information.

We encourage all veterans and their family members to call with questions regarding veterans benefits or to set-up an appointment with the Veterans Service Officer or the Assistant Veterans Service Officer. Many of the benefits available through the VA or WDVA can be difficult and time consuming to apply for. We will gladly assist any veteran or family member with the paperwork and application process.
