Veteran Services

Hamilton's Division of Veterans Services provides residents of Hamilton Township with direct local access to information on State and Federal Veteran Services and benefits, while recognizing the service and sacrifices made by our veterans and active service military.  

While numerous veterans services and benefits exist, many veterans and their families are often unaware of them or do not know where to turn for help or assistance.

Our mission is to assist our veterans by helping to direct them to the services and programs that can help them, and specifically those that are provided at the Federal, State and County level of government.

Also feature on our website is information that may be of benefit to those serving in the NJ National Guard and Reserve.
