Responsibilities & Services
The Westfield Department of Veterans Services is responsible for assisting veterans residing in Westfield. We assist with veterans issues on the federal, state and local levels.
Veteran's Services houses discharges that have been registered with this office, electronic and paper, as well any other documents that have been provided to the department. These files are available to veterans upon request. If we are unable to locate a veteran's discharge, we can assist veterans with applications to receive copies of their discharge through federal agencies.
