Greene County veterans affairs officer Mike Bierl and the Greene County veterans commission want to improve communication and increase awareness of veteran resources, benefits, and activities for all military veterans in the county.
Veterans who want to receive emails containing veteran affairs newsletters and other helpful information such as veteran local/statewide events, benefit updates, healthcare updates, education benefits and more are encouraged to send their email address to Bierl at mbierl [at] co [dot] greene [dot] ia [dot] us. Email addresses will be kept private and will not be shared with other agencies. Information will be emailed as it is received or created.
