Klickitat County Veteran’s Services

Klickitat County, WA (October 28, 2016) – The Klickitat County Auditor and County Commissioners are working on an emergency hire for a Veteran’s Service Officer. Recently the current Veteran’s Service Officer resigned.

Klickitat County is home to thousands of veterans who were struggling to receive their veteran’s benefits prior to 2014 when the County Commissioners formed the Veterans Advisory Board.

The Veterans Advisory Board identified the need for a Veteran’s Service Officer to assist Klickitat County veterans in the daunting task of getting their benefits. Because of this, over $4 million in veteran benefits have been recovered over the last 2+ years.

Until this position is filled there will be a Veterans Advisory Board member at the Goldendale and White Salmon offices to keep veterans informed.

Klickitat County appreciates the patience and understanding of our veterans and their families while we work quickly to get a qualified individual in place to serve our county’s veterans.
If you have questions concerning this information, please call the Klickitat County Auditor Brenda Sorensen or Chief Deputy Auditor Heather Jobe at 509-773-4001 or 800-583-8050.
