Leadership

The people of Montgomery County are grateful for the many sacrifices each veteran has made in service to our country for the cause of worldwide freedom. As a symbol of their appreciation, the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners extends certain free services and benefits to resident members of the Montgomery County Veteran Community.

The Montgomery County Office of Veterans Affairs (OVA) is strategically placed in the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Many of our Resident Veterans are eligible for OVA services and other program services such as Senior Services, Public Health, Mental Health or Drug & Alcohol.
