Lubbock Veteran Resources

The Veterans Advisory Council has put together this list of local, state and federal resources to assist area veterans in finding the services they need.  We have made every attempt for this site to be as thorough as possible.  If you have an organization that provides services to veterans that is not listed here, we would be glad to consider include it for this page once it's been reviewed.
