“Serving Those Who Have Served”

The Office of Veterans Affairs provides access to special programs and services for veterans and their families. As advocates for veterans, staff provides timely information on services, events and activities affecting veterans. This includes coordination with the Colorado Division of Veterans Affairs and the United Veterans Committee (UVC) of Colorado. The Veterans Affairs staff also assists all veterans in applying for benefits, employment assistance, medical care, transportation and coordination to other services.

Staff consists of volunteers who are military veterans. They are trained by and work in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and have successfully been accredited by the National Associated of County Veterans Service Officers.

Our Mission

What's New

  • Veterans Choice Card

    December 17, 2014

    The Choice Program is a new, temporary benefit that allows some Veterans to receive health care in their communities rather than waiting for a VA appointment or traveling to a VA facility. The first round of cards along with a letter explaining the program was issued on November 5 to Veterans who are eligible based on their place of residence. VA is now engaging in the next phase of its rollout –eligibility explanation letters are being sent to Veterans waiting more than 30 days from their preferred date to be seen or considered medically necessary by their physician.

    For more information about using this card if they are issued please visit www.triwest.com/en/veteran-services/the-veterans-choice-card-benefit/frequently-asked-questions/
