Veterans Day was observed on Nov. 11, honoring military veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces. Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day, as Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.
The Tehama County Veterans Services office is proud to serve Tehama County Veterans and their family members every day, and we thank all our veterans for their sacrifice.
We will have a Christmas Open House at our Red Bluff office 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Dec. 15.The Tehama County Veterans Collaborative graciously offered to host our Holiday Open House. Please help us spread the word and we look forward to seeing veterans and other members of the community at the Open House.
The Tehama County Veterans Services Corning and Los Molinos satellite offices are doing very well. We could use more help getting the word out about our Los Molinos satellite office. Any business in the county that does not have a Veterans Services Office flier, please call the office and a flier will be brought to the for posting.
Corning continues to be very busy. Thanks to all who support our satellite offices and enable us to do outreach in our county.
Dependent College Fee Waivers can be submitted to the Veterans Services Office or make an appointment with Beverly Holden or Andrew Norwood at our Red Bluff office. Documentation necessary prior to the appointment are the Veteran’s DD-214, dependent’s birth certificate or if spouse, marriage license, VA rating disability letter and IRS or Franchise Tax Board 2016 income verification for the dependent. The College Fee Waiver packages will be reviewed by the VSO on administrative Fridays.
