The Juneau County Veterans Service Office and its staff act as an advocate for a variety of veterans benefits available to veterans, and their families. The staff takes great care and compassion to insure that each client is treated with dignity and respect. We guarantee that each client receives the fullest measure of our ability to serve them as a veteran, or their dependent. We provide a link to state and federal veteran's agencies and assist our customers in obtaining the listed benefits for which they are eligible. The Service Officer may also travel to Nursing and Rehabilitative Facilities.
