Veterans Services

       On August 7th of every year, our nation honors those men and woman who have suffered physical injuries while serving honorably in a time of war. The Massachusetts Department of Veteran Services’ is asking cities and towns across the commonwealth to honor our brothers and sisters by shining a purple spot light on a veteran’s monument or local official building. In working closely with town management, it has been determined the most suitable monument would be the WW1 monument at the Old Dartmouth Police Station at the corner of Elm St. On the morning of August 7th, the Veterans Agent will set up spot light in front of the plaque (attached to a boulder) to shine on the names of the WW1 Veterans as well as the base of the flag pole. The light will be removed the following day. The Commonwealth and the Massachusetts Department of Veteran Services will release a communication the day of August 7th with Dartmouth being a community that will be recognized for participating in this event.

The Dartmouth Veterans Service Office is open during regular business hours with office visits being by appointment only and will have to follow strict guidelines put in place by the Governor and the Department of Public Health. The Veterans Office encourages Chapter 115 recipients to submit documents/receipts by mail or by placing in the silver mailbox in front of the Dartmouth Town Hall located at 400 Slocum Rd. in Dartmouth. Please call 508-910-1818 if you have any concerns or issues.

The next Chapter 115 Benefits payment(deposit) will be Monday, August 17th, 2020. All receipts must be submitted through the U.S. Mail or dropped off at Town Hall in the silver mailbox; by August 7th, 2020 for the next weeks' payment.
