Veterans

  • Each May, Supervisor Lovingood hosts his annual Veterans Resource Fair. The event is a one-stop shop for veterans to learn about a variety of health care, financial and other services.
  • San Bernardino County has an amazing Department of Veterans Affairs under the leadership of retired Col. Frank Guevara. In 2018, the County V.A. filed service connected disability claims which resulted in veterans receiving over $45 million. This is the highest amount received by any county in California. The department filed and was granted 1,258 California college tuition waivers worth $5.9 million. College fees and tuition are waived for children of disabled veterans or children of service members who died on active duty.
  • In 2015, the Homeless Veteran Community Planning Group was formed. This group of local agencies pool skills and resources to help find permanent homes and provide supportive services for homeless military veterans. In 2018, we celebrated the 1,000th homeless veteran to receive permanent housing in San Bernardino County.
