We want YOU! Are you

County? Consider applying to serve on our County of San Mateo - Government
Veterans Commission – the deadline is September 1, 2017! Applications can

A little information about our Veterans Commission: established in 2015, it
consists of 11 voting Commissioners and 2 alternate Commissioners. The
Commission advises and makes recommendations to the Board of Supervisors,
implements an annual work plan, provides a public forum for input from the
veterans community to identify unmet needs, works with existing veteransŐ
advocacy and service organizations to help coordinate systems of care and
benefits, and takes positions pertaining to federal, state and local policies,
programs and procedures and any legislation affecting veterans and their
families, and to fulfill other duties and engage in activities as directed by
the Board of Supervisors. They were also the driving force behind our annual
Veteran of the Year Luncheon (which will be held on November 9, 2017).
