We are veterans helping veterans, service-members, and their families, in any way we can.
RockVets is a project of New York Vets, a non-profit agency created in 1992 to care for those who have worn this nation's uniform - no matter where or when they served in the United States military.
The Veterans Service Agency of Rockland was established in 1945 and continues to provide information and assistance to Rockland County, New York veterans.
As veterans we have earned benefits because of our military service. We have information for you on the GI Bill, educational benefits, medical benefits, post traumatic stress, and submitting VA claim forms. We will provide you with the most current information on all veteran-related topics. There is never a fee for our services.
We welcome your inquiries. If you have a question, ask us....rules and regulations change constantly so don't assume that something you heard even a few years ago, is still valid now.
Our VA veterans' medical clinic in New City, New York provides ongoing medical services for more than 6,500 local veterans. This was the first-of-its-kind established and now there are more than 1,000 such VA medical clinics throughout the U.S. - making it much more convenient for the veteran to access VA medical benefits.
