You are not forgotten
We help military veterans and their families get the benefits they've earned.
VA benefits are not received automatically and navigating the benefits process can be confusing.
We're here to help. Our Veterans Service Officers are well trained and know how to get you the benefits you deserve.
Call us with questions about VA claims or other veterans' benefits at 503-650-5631. We will return messages as quickly as possible.
If we are unable to leave you a voicemail or speak with you after 3 tries during a 2-week period, we will help other veterans. Do not hesitate to contact us again should this happen. You can also contact us by email.

Are you a US Navy “blue water” Vietnam Veteran? On Jan. 29, 2019, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled in favor of a veteran who served onboard the USS Intrepid and now suffers from Type 2 Diabetes and Prostate Cancer. This decision overturns the previous decision Haas v. Peake; potentially opening the door to previous denied or new claims for Navy Veterans who served aboard ships in the coastal waters of Vietnam.For more information call Clackamas County Veteran Service Office at 503-650-5761.
