MSOs Hit the Road, Add Stops to Campuses

posted on

As much of the nation thaws out from a historical winter, DAV’s fleet of  “offices on wheels” is getting back on the road, bringing the organization’s top-notch service to veterans in smaller towns and rural communities.

DAV’s Mobile Service Offices (MSOs) have an aggressive schedule this spring, summer and even deep into autumn across the country to counsel, assist and educate veterans and their families on the benefits and services available to them.

With a sharp increase in the number of veterans going back to school after the military, DAV is increasing the number of MSO stops at universities and colleges. Upcoming MSO stops include Sam Houston State University March 25 in Huntsville, Texas; Victorville Valley College March 28 in Victorville, Calif.; Adams State University April 3 in Alamosa, Colo.; Museum of Texas Technical University April 24 in St. Lubbock, Texas; Central Texas College April 29 in Killeen, Texas; and Universal Technical Institute May 2 in Irving, Texas.

Aided by Department and Chapter Service Officers, the MSO program provides support to veterans filing claims for benefits administered under federal, state and local laws. National Service Officers counsel and assist with the development of evidence, completion of required applications and prosecution of claims, bringing DAV services to veterans and their families where they live.
