Nevada Veterans Advocates (NV Advocates)

What Does a Nevada Veterans Advocate Do?

A Nevada Veterans Advocate (NV Advocate) is a person who helps educate active military members, Guard or Reserves, veterans, as well as their families about earned benefits and opportunities through U.S. military service. Simply put: Nevada Veterans Advocates learn about veterans benefits and resources in order to share that information with their local communities and guide them to the professionals who can help.
