Commissioner Pete Wheeler, leader of the Georgia Department of Veterans Service since 1954, died peacefully surrounded by family in the early morning, Tuesday, April 21, 2015.
We are extremely proud of the Georgians who have honorably served our country over the centuries. It is now our honor to serve you.
The Georgia Department of Veterans Service is an agency of state government created for the purpose of advising, counseling, and assisting Georgia’s veterans and their families in receiving their rightful benefits under the vast and complex framework of veterans’ laws.
Georgia’s seven-member State Veterans Service Board recently elected new officers for 2015-16. Their terms began April 1.
In light of recent changes to federal policy regarding veterans benefits, the Georgia Department of Veterans Service (GDVS) would like to remind veterans and their families of the availability of personal assistance in filing for earned benefits.
