Thomas P. Palladino, Executive DirectorExecutive Director’s Message

We are very honored and privileged to serve those who served in the U.S. Armed Services as well as the family members of these deserving individuals. We have an obligation to remind our fellow citizens that freedom is not free. It came at a price paid with blood and sacrifice by American veterans like you.

We strongly support a collaborative state-wide partnership that includes local, state, and federal governmental offices and private organizations to connect with all veterans, families, and survivors across the state and meet their needs through a broad range of services and assistance.

Additionally, we are committed to provide quality customer service in a professional and compassionate manner.

As President Theodore Roosevelt stated in 1903, “A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards.”
