Veterans Service Agency
The City of Mount Vernon has a long standing history of recognizing and serving the needs of those who served to protect our nation in times of peace and war. In fact, in paying honor to our veterans, the City of Mount Vernon, in 1931, named its largest field at the time, Memorial Field.
The Mount Vernon Veterans Service Agency acts as a liaison between veterans, their dependents and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Those individuals who served our country as a member of the armed forces during Korean War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and the Persian gulf Wars. Assistance is also provided to persons who served this country but whose tour of duty did not include wartime activity. The agency additionally coordinates activities and benefits with other public and private agencies on behalf of those seeking assistance.
