Nevada Department of Veterans Services -Serving Nevada’s Heroes – For over 75 years we have been dedicated to helping an estimated 250,000 Nevada veterans get the services, benefits and quality of life they deserve. The men and women of the Nevada Department of Veterans Services are honored to address any issue, problem or concern of Nevada’s veterans and serving military – and their families. In addition to offering benefits counseling and assistance, including filing VA claims at no cost, we also operate a nationally recognized Southern Nevada State Veterans Home, in Boulder City, and our Northern Nevada State Veterans Home in Sparks. We also offer burial services and support obtaining military honors at our memorial cemeteries located in both Northern and Southern Nevada.

In order to fully thank and memorialize the Military who have given their lives so that we can be a free nation and state, the Nevada Veterans Memorial Plaza will be at The Sparks Marina in Sparks, Nevada. It is to be a Statewide Memorial where all current 896 Servicemen and Women (and those in the future) from all counties will be enshrined. The Nevada Veterans Memorial project receives funding from individuals and companies interested in commemorating our Nevada fallen soldiers. All proceeds will support the plaza.  We are a 501c3 non-profit organization
