Veteran Advocacy and Outreach

Ensuring veteran voices are heard and their needs
addressed. We strive to raise awareness about challenges faced by veterans, and to build
community relationships with partners that can provide additional veteran support.

Assistance Navigating Veterans Affairs (VA)

Navigating the VA can be arduous for many
veterans - many veterans are often not claiming benefits they are eligible for, including
healthcare services, educational benefits, disability eligibility, and more.

Teaching Respect for the Nation, Flag Honors, Military Service and Citizenship

Veterans in the Classroom sends veterans to local schools. The Indian River Veterans Council is pleased to sponsor these visits and have vets explain how patriotism, honoring veterans, and respect for the American flag should be an integral part of American life. The students have the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of military service, history, and patriotism.
