Office of Veteran Affairs

The Cherokee Nation Veterans Center helps veterans access benefits and services from the Department of Veteran Affairs and other agencies both internal and external to the Cherokee Nation. The Cherokee Nation Office of Veteran Affairs staff is available to all veterans. Services are also provided regardless of the nature of the veteran’s discharge. This includes service provision to those individuals with problematic discharge. The staff with the Cherokee Nation Office of Veteran Affairs works closely with personnel within the Department of Health Services Administration, the Department of Veteran Affairs, and other federal, state and city agencies and organizations. The goal is to identify and link eligible veterans with available resources through a comprehensive network of services.
