Veteran Services

Responsibilities

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.
