The phrase, “Everyone knows a Veteran” is true in every form of the word. They were the ones that took an oath and stood watch. They are the real sheepdogs and the ones who signed a blank check to the greatest Nation on earth. That check was written for “up to, and including, my life” and was written in blood, sweat, and tears. It could be your neighbor, your barber or your Aunt or Uncle. Veterans come in all shapes and sizes and from every walk of life. Once the job is complete and they are civilians once again, there is a debt the Nation still owes them.
Since the inception of the Veterans Service Office, at the conclusion of the Civil war, it has been our mission to take care of and look after our Brothers and Sisters in arms. At the Granville County Veterans Service Office, we are still standing watch. The debt is being paid.
The Granville County Veterans Service Office is located at 107 Lanier Street in Oxford. Our office provides a wide range of services to the veteran and their family members. We serve all veterans, spouses, widows, and children of veterans residing in Granville County with Veterans Administration matters.
Our office is responsible for securing allowable and applicable benefits for veterans and their dependents. Services include advising local veterans concerning their rights under various federal and state laws, counseling them, and assisting them by filling out the proper forms for forwarding to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Work is guided by state and federal laws/regulations.
