As a member of the military, or as a military spouse, you have access to a variety of information and helpful services through the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, which provides guidance, support, and legislative coordination to the Colorado National Guard, Civil Air Patrol, and Colorado Division of Veterans Affairs.

The Division does this by serving as a central source of information on veterans’ benefits, rights and issues. For example, the Western Region One Source is the trusted One Source in the Western Region of Colorado for all veterans, military service members, and their families seeking a connection with service providers and resources.
The Division also assists families throughout the claims process with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for state and federal benefits, serving as a central source of information on veterans' benefits, rights and issues. Contact the Division of Veterans Affairs.
