Ohio Revised Code 5901 provides for the establishment of a Veterans Service Commission in each county throughout the state. The Court of Common Pleas appoints the five members of the Commission which makes policies, rules and regulations in order to implement the law. Each person on the commission shall be an honorably discharged or honorably separated veteran. One person shall be a representative recommended by the American Legion; one person shall be a representative recommended by the Veterans of Foreign Wars; one person shall be a representative recommended by the Disabled American Veterans; one person shall be a representative recommended by the AMVETS; one person shall be a representative recommended by the Military Order of the Purple Heart of the U.S.A., the Vietnam Veterans of America, or Korean War Veterans.
The Commission provides financial assistance to veterans, active duty members of the Armed Forces of the United States, or the needy spouse, surviving spouse, dependent parent, minor child, or ward of a veteran or active duty member of the Armed Forces of United States, who has been a bona fide resident of the county.
Service Officers advise and assist present and former members of the Armed Forces of the United States, veterans, and their spouses, surviving spouses, children, parents, and dependents in presenting claims or obtaining rights or benefits under any law of the United States or of this State.
