What Does a Nevada Veterans Advocate Do?

A Nevada Veterans Advocate (NVA) is a person who helps educate active military members, guard and reserve members, Veterans and their families about benefits and opportunities they may be eligible for. Simply put: Nevada Veterans Advocates are people who want to help others and take the time to learn how to do so!
