The April meeting of the Veterans Advisory Board. Please check back here for updates. 

Veterans Advisory Board


The Kitsap County Veterans' Advisory Board is made up of 17 volunteers from throughout the county who are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners for three-year terms. All members must be veterans of military or merchant marine service honorably discharged.  A simple majority of the council are members of local chapters of national recognized veterans organizations.

The Veterans Advisory Board is chartered to advise County Commissioners on matters affecting local indigent veterans. Members are expected to attend monthly meetings and a longer annual retreat. Members also help coordinate the Veteran Stand Down events in April and September, and the annual The Unforgotten Run to Tahoma ceremony on Memorial Day weekend honoring the unclaimed remains of deceased veterans. The Veterans Advisory Board is also active with local Veterans Day and military appreciation ceremonies.
