THE BURLINGTON OFFICE OF VETERANS SERVICES advises clients as to the availability of state and federal services and benefits to which they may be entitled. This office is the gateway for Massachusetts Department of Veterans Services' and Federal Veterans Affairs' benefits in order to provide financial assistance to all needy, eligible veterans, surviving spouses and their dependents. This office also coordinates public events such as Memorial Day and Veterans Day programs. On Memorial Day this office and volunteers place more than 3000 flags on the graves of veterans interred in a Town of Burlington cemetery.

***Warning*** ***Please take note***
Operation Green Zone has been under the microscope and the Nonprofit Organizations/Public Charities Division of the Health Care and Fair Competition Bureau of the Office of Attorney General Maura Healey (that's a mouthful) is actively looking at making sure they are shut down.
Operation Green Zone created a separate nonprofit to help fund the main nonprofit. The president of the organization is a convicted felon for fraud and embezzlement. Stay away from Operation Green Zone.
American Veterans Aid or https://americanveteransaid.com/ is charging Veterans up front fees for beginning to complete Aid and Attendance application. They are not charging for the actual application, just screening of information, creation of letter of determination, and other referral services. Stay away from them and warn others because we do everything for free!
Veterans Assistance Foundation, Inc. is under the spotlight because they have another copycat organization soliciting on their behalf. This organization was run through the Att. General's office and they do check out. Veterans Assistance Foundation, Inc. has warned the public and potential donors that someone is soliciting claiming they are their organization when they are in fact, not.
One Call Away is a registered nonprofit in Massachusetts. They provide help for Veterans suffering from PTSD. Be careful when working with them because they do not have trained clinicians and do not have the ability of helping anyone with PTSD. They are simply a referral service and can give a Veteran money quickly. They also work with other nonprofits including Project New Hope and have been able to acquire merchandise such as coats to hand out to Veterans.
