Welcome to Story County Veterans Affairs!

Serving Those Who Have Served

We are extremely proud of the Story County Veterans who have honorably served our country and extend a warm welcome home from the Director and Commission of Story County Veterans Affairs.

Story County Veterans Affairs is dedicated to ensuring that Story County Veterans and their dependents receive the full measure of county, state, and federal benefits to which they are entitled. For our newest Veterans, we are committed to helping you make a successful reintegration into civilian life and community.

All of Iowa's 99 counties are served by a director/administrator and County Commission of Veterans Affairs. This is your initial point of contact; we urge you to contact our office if you are a resident of Story County or will soon be a resident of Story County.
