Veterans Service Commission
The Hancock County Veterans Service Commission is a five member board appointed under the provisions of Title 59 of the Ohio Revised Code. Each member is appointed by both Judges of the Court of Common Pleas of Hancock County for a term of five years. Each is appointed to represent a specific veterans organization – in our county, currently The American Legion, AMVETS, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, and the Korean War Veterans/Military Order of the Purple Heart. Even though their appointment is from a specific organization, they represent all Hancock County Veterans and their families.
The Commisison oversees the operation of the Hancock County Veterans Service Office, and is responsible to ensure that veterans and their eligible family members receive all benefits – federal, state, and local – to which they may be entitled.
Currently, the commission is comprised of the following members:
