WARM SPRINGS, OR -- Oregon’s Department of Veterans Affairs reached an agreement this week with the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, to set up the state’s first tribal veteran service office. It’s also the first state-tribal partnership of this kind in state history.

 

ODVA officials say the new agency will operate like a county veteran service office, providing direct services to vets, while recognizing the unique challenges faced by this population. There is no date set, yet, for when the office will open.
