Veterans Services

We facilitate full and equal participation in all aspects of life by veterans in Boston.

We recognize, engage, and advocate for our veterans and their families, by connecting them with the services and resources they've earned.

Our department oversees the financial assistance program known as Massachusetts General Law Chapter 115. This includes the decoration of veterans' graves and hero squares on Memorial Day, and carries out commemorative activities related to Boston veterans.
