Your Post Service Officer (PSO) can provide you with basic information and assistance with benefits and programs of the Department of Veterans Affairs. Often, as the initial point of contact regarding veteran issues, the PSO can help direct you to a community resource or refer you to the American Legion Department Service Officer (DSO).
The DSO includes all American Legion professional service officer employees of a Department or a State Veterans agency. DSOs have specialized training and experience that contribute to a thorough knowledge of VA regulations and instructions. They are familiar with the broad spectrum of VA programs and operations. The DSO is also an accredited representative, responsible for providing assistance and representation in any claim for VA benefits.
While some information and helpful links for research are provided below, please do ask for assistance at any point in your exploration.
