Erie County Veterans Service Agency

Erie County Veterans Service Agency Welcome to our page! If you're looking for the official website of the Erie County Veterans

Originated in 1926, The Erie County Veterans Service Agency was the first of its kind in the State of New York. Due to the increased demand for such services, and accelerated by World War II, the Agency became a part of the County Government on January 1, 1945. Since that time, this office has provided service to many thousands of veterans and their dependents, residing in Erie County.

🗓️ This date in 1944: President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs the "G.I. Bill" into law. Officially called the "Servicemen's Readjustment Act," the bill provided a range of benefits, including college education, for many returning World War II veterans.

The bill transformed the lives of millions of Americans, and is credited with helping create a thriving middle class and driving long-term economic growth for decades after WWII.

The ships will be closed to the public as we work to assess a situation with USS The Sullivans. Yesterday, a serious hull breach occurred aft of midship on the starboard side. Our crew has been monitoring the ship all night and morning and are working with marine engineers and members of BIDCO Marine Group, the Buffalo Fire Department, Buffalo Police Department, Homeland Security, and Coast Guard to assess the problem, minimize damage, and remove water from the ship.

For over a year, we have been working hard to preserve USS The Sullivans and that work continues today and into the future. We are grateful for your continued support of this historic ship and of the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park.
