State Veterans Affairs Board

Assisting Our Veterans

In 1924 the Mississippi Legislature recognized that World War I veterans needed assistance to obtain veterans’ benefits, so it created the office of State Service Commissioner. The duties and functions of this office were to aid all residents of Mississippi who had served in the military forces of the United States during war, and their dependents and beneficiaries. In 1948 the legislature changed the State Service Commission to the State Veterans Affairs Board.
