The Nevada Department of Veterans Services (NDVS) Veterans Outreach "ROVER" Program will visit so veterans and family members will be able to meet with a Veterans Service Officer (VSO) to learn about benefits and services they may be eligible for but unaware of.

The program will be at the Winnemucca Armory on April 15 from 1-5 p.m. and April 16 from 8 a.m.-noon.

Veterans and family members can make an appointment to meet with a Veterans Service Officer to discuss their benefits and pre-scheduled appointmenhts are suggested. Walk-in appointments are welcome, but can only be seen as time permits.

"Appointments at some recent locations have filled up prior to the date," says program supervisor, Scott Fincher. "With help from the community, the word has been getting out and we really encourage veterans or family members to consider making an appointment in advance."

To schedule an advanced appointment, contact Pamela (775) 688-1653 or Barbara at (775) 321-4880. Veterans are advised to bring a copy of their DD-214 discharge document, current VA paperwork, medical information and banking account information. If the claim involves dependents, bring birth certificates, current and prior marriage certificates, divorce decrees, and social security numbers.

The ROVER Program is funded by donations to the Veterans Gift Account that is supported by the Nevada Veterans License Plate Program. With mission-focused employees, NDVS is responsible for the administration of two State Veterans Memorial Cemeteries, a State Veterans Home, and a State-wide Veterans Service Officer program. NOVS is instrumental in connecting Nevada's veterans and their families with benefits and assistance from both the State and Federal government.
