Veterans Affairs

Our Mission

The mission of the Oceana County Department of Veterans Affairs Committee is to care for, lend support to, and be an advocate for the veterans of Oceana County, their spouses, and families. The OCDVA will vigorously and contentiously pursue all avenues of veteran’s benefits and community services that provide compensation or pension relief for the burden of war and service to the United States on behalf of the veteran.

Our Vision

To serve the veterans of Oceana County with honor and respect, always be relevant and be able to meet the needs of and form lifelong relationships with the veterans of Oceana County and their families.
