The Nevada Department of Veterans Services, in order to show our appreciation for the veterans and veteran supporters within our state, have created two honors:
The Veteran of the Month award recognizes Nevada veterans who contribute their time and energy to support veterans, their communities and/or the military.”Men and women across Nevada who have made a significant contribution will have achieved excellence by going above and beyond the call of duty,” stated Governor Sandoval in his presentation. “It will be an opportunity for all of us to shine a bright light on the work veterans continue to do for our nation.”
The Veteran Supporter of the Month award recognizes both active organizations and non-veteran Nevada community members that provide exceptional support to military stationed in Nevada, Nevada veterans, and their families.

There are a number of Veteran Service Organizations all across the United States. The VA recognizes a number of Chartered Service Organizations, which means they are federally chartered and/or recognized or approved by the VA Secretary for purposes of preparation, presentation, and prosecution of claims under laws administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
But there are a number of other local agencies and business that support veterans and their families within the state. The Pentagon once called this phenomenon “The Sea of Goodwill”. Click here to see a directory of Service Organizations and what they offer.
In November, 2014, Governor Brian Sandoval created Nevada’s Book of Fallen Heroes. The book is located at the State Capitol Building in Carson City and each week a page is turned remembering those who gave their lives for freedom. In the attached pages of this website section are the names of those currently listed in the Book of Fallen Heroes separated by each war.
