About

Dear Tribal Veterans,
 

My name is Gregg W. Duffek and I have been appointed the Stockbridge-Munsee Tribal Veterans Service Officer. The Tribal Veterans Service Office is intended to help Tribal Veterans access and use VA benefits and services to better their health and life. The Office is funded by a state grant and makes service available 20 hours per month here in our Community.


The mission is to advocate within the Community for Veterans, their dependents and survivors. To help them find services to obtain healthcare, drivers licensing, education, employment, financial help and many other services from state and federal resources.


What do you need to be eligible for TVSO assistance?

  1. Military service (Character; Type; Duration), and
  2. Wisconsin state residency 

 

In order to be eligible for Wisconsin state veterans’ benefits, programs, and services, a veteran’s service, as characterized on the military discharge certificate (i.e., DD Form 214) must have been honorable, under honorable conditions, or general under honorable conditions. Veterans with characterizations of uncharacterized, bad conduct, other than honorable or dishonorable can seek to have their discharge upgraded through the military appeals process or request the federal VA adjudicate their case. Most veterans who follow this process and become eligible for general federal VA benefits will also be granted eligibility for Wisconsin state benefits.
