Veterans Upcoming Events

 



The Wichita County Veterans Service Office also serves Baylor and Wilbarger counties.
The Veteran Service Officers are certified through the Texas Veterans Commission to better serve our vets and their families.

A Service Officer is available at the Baylor Courthouse Annex every other Tuesday in the month and in the Wilbarger Courthouse basement every Wednesday in the month.

These advocate services provide an opportunity to meet with veterans, widows, and family members who may be entitled to VA benefits or want to learn if a family member has any entitlements.

Veteran's Day Parade- Saturday November 4th, 2017



Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN)
www.milvetpeer.net

The Military Veteran Peer Networks' mission is to establish camaraderie and trust with each other, identifying and vetting community resources and, collectively, contributing to the communities where we live. In addition, we help active duty, reserves, guard, veterans and their family’s members who suffer from the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), or Military Sexual Assault (MST), to connect with support available for them and the benefits they have earned. We assist in providing certified facilitators who are trained to help.
