The United States is eternally grateful for the heroic acts of all veterans who have shouldered difficult burdens while helping to preserve our nation’s liberties. In helping to honor our veterans, my goal is to facilitate their relationship with the federal government as much as possible. Below is a list of local and federal resources I have compiled to address the needs of returned servicemen and women. As always, please feel free to contact my office if you need any further assistance.
The Rhode Island Division of Veterans Affairs is a valuable resource. The Division operates the Rhode Island Veterans Home, the Rhode Island Veterans Cemetery, and the RI Office of Veterans Affairs. It can also connect you with several locally-based support services.
Other local resources include:
