The Nevada Office of Veterans Services Veterans Outreach “ROVER” Program will visit the Eureka Fire House, 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.
“We continue to ask local businesses, city officials and anyone willing to help us spread the word, to post a flyer at their location or download and email the flyer to their personal network,” says Executive Deputy Director, Kat Miller.

Wednesday – Aug. 13 – Eureka Fire House – 290 N. Main St. – 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Veterans and family members can make an appointment to meet with a Veterans Service Officer to discuss their benefits and pre-scheduled appointments 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 ext 6 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 dependants; bring birth certificates, current and prior marriage certificates, divorce decrees, and social security numbers.
