Veterans Advisory Board


     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 purpose and establishment of the Veterans Advisory Board is to advise the Board of County Commissioners on the needs of local indigent veterans, the resources available to local indigent veterans, and programs that could benefit the needs of local indigent veterans and their families.

Applications are now open for those who wish to serve on the Veterans Advisory Board.
