IT’S AMAZING WHAT PRAISING WILL DO! PRAISE THE
The latest numbers reported from the Department of Veteran Affairs are in and The Campbell
County Veteran Affairs Office is excited to report that for the NINTH STRAIGHT year in a row, our county continues to break records in monetary benefits for
3000 of its veterans and their families. With a veteran population of 2999, we averaged $7,846.91 per veteran.
Last year, we
reported that Veteran Affairs sent Campbell County $6,382 per veteran population. In addition to 23.53 Million dollars sent
to our Campbell County Veterans, the Veteran Affairs have spent 7.47 Million Dollars in Medical Care last year
on our Veterans. Campbell County
Service Officer, Kevin Walden continues to represent our county and state in Nashville as the 3rd term President of the Tennessee
County Service Officer Association among his 100+ peers across Tennessee. Kevin Walden continues to state that the County’s
success came from God’s Guidance through PRAYER and the hard labor of his staff (Gwen Lobertini and Tanya Davis).
“First, our office would like
to thank the Veterans and their families for entrusting us with their Veteran Affairs. We would like to thank Bob & Linda
Andreas (Service Officer Emeritus) for their past labor, paving the way and setting the foundation so that we
could continue great success. We also would like to thank many leaders/supporters in our community that encourage the
many Veterans’ programs; your support is not in vain! I also would like to thank our each of commissioners that
support Veteran’s Affairs Department & pray for their continued support.“
Moreover, Campbell County Veterans now
have their own VA Clinic in operation and we thank General Carl W. Stiner for his continued support and assistance
in making this a reality. Just when we thought the VA was going to break their promise to “caring for those who
have borne the battle” , General Stiner continues his “call to duty” and demonstrating true traits of a
great leader. We are blessed to have him and his family among us in our community!
Also, we would like
to recognize the finest Honor Guards in Tennessee who do an awesome job honoring our fallen comrades and their families.
Our Honor Guards spread a positive awareness throughout Tennessee from the Army National Guard Funeral Honors Program and
they are always looking for new members. For more information about the Honor Guards or Veteran Benefits in Campbell County,
call us at 423-562-3531 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting.
Again, we praise the Lord for what He is doing through us.. To HIM be the GLORY!

The Campbell County Veteran Service Office assists veterans and their dependents who
are in need of assistance such as counseling and advice, funds, medical treatment, loaning of available medical equipment,
educational benefits, burial benefits, assistance in filing necessary forms all in compliance with congressional
federal law regulating the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). Many of our clientele are fully dependent on VA for their
survival especially for funds on which to live. There are many problems with keeping a smooth dispensation of these funds,
therefore the Veteran’s Office acts as mediator.
