Sign up here to receive electronic announcements for meeting and special events from the Veterans Advisory Board and Kitsap County Veterans Assistance Program.
The Kitsap County Veterans' Advisory Board is made up of 17 volunteers from throughout the county who are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners for three-year terms. All members must be veterans of military or merchant marine service honorably discharged. A simple majority of the council are members of local chapters of national recognized veterans organizations.
The Veterans Advisory Board is chartered to advise County Commissioners on matters affecting local indigent veterans. Members are expected to attend monthly meetings and a longer annual retreat. Members also help coordinate the Veteran Stand Down events in April and September, and the annual The Unforgotten Run to Tahoma ceremony on Memorial Day weekend honoring the unclaimed remains of deceased veterans. The Veterans Advisory Board is also active with local Veterans Day and military appreciation ceremonies.
