Veterans' Services

The Ward County Veteran's Service Office is here to assist veterans and their dependents with accessing the numerous, and often confusing, array of benefits available from the federal Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the North Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs, and other agencies as applicable.

We will do our best to help you directly, and if we can't, we will direct you to someone who can. Our primary goal is to make sure that every eligible veteran or dependent has access to the benefits to which they are entitled. We are committed to that goal, and anything else would be unsatisfactory.
