The Nevada Department of Veterans Services (NDVS) Veterans Outreach “ROVER” Program will visit Eureka soon so that 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 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 Director, Kat Miller.

To download; go to the NDVS ROVER page at http://www.veterans.nv.gov/rover.html to find the ROVER schedule and scroll down to the date of the event.

The program will be held at the Eureka Fire House, 290 N. Main St., on Wednesday Dec. 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Veterans and family members can make an appointment to meet with a Veterans Service Officer to discuss their benefits.

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. “Due to the distance from Reno, we’ve scheduled two sessions to make best use of our visit.”

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 dependants, 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.
