Harry Fontenot is the Van Zandt County Veteran Services Officer. The county veteran services offices provide assistance, counsel and advocacy for veterans, spouses, widows and dependents, helping them to obtain state and federal veterans’ benefits. The offices can help secure copies of DD214s, medals and certificates, and provide information on VA healthcare, service-connected claims, pensions, dependency indemnity claims, education, home loans, insurance, burial benefits and other veterans concerns. There is a county residence requirement to obtain service.
The (VSO) office is located at the VETERANS MEMORIAL OFFICES located at 1600 S. Trade Days Blvd. behind the Veterans Plaza. (Look for the large Silver F4-D Phantom Jet)
A new handicap access is part of the convenience for our wheelchair access veterans.
