Veterans' Services District
In February 2013 Bedford and Lexington formed a district to better serve the veterans of both towns and formally approved by the Selectmen from both communities as well as the Massachusetts Department of Veterans Services in Boston. Lexington Veterans Service Officer Ryan Lennon will serve as the District Director and part time Veterans Service Officer (VSO) William Linnehan will assist Lennon. Linnehan will be primarily based in the Bedford Office and will be available in the Bedford office Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Mission Statement developed for the new district is to support the veterans residing in our district by identifying veterans and their families in need of service and providing information and access to the services for which they are eligible under the law.
Goals and Objectives
1.) To execute timely and accurate benefit delivery for all veterans seeking help from the Federal, State and Local branches of government
2.) To provide dignity, compassion, respect and privacy to all veterans seeking assistance
3.) To empower veterans through technology, information sharing, and networking; where they can assist themselves and their fellow veterans by connecting services to need
4.) To continue the fight against homelessness and joblessness within the veteran community
5.) To be honest and forthright with our veterans, researching the correct answer and providing results as quickly as accuracy allows
6.) To see the office as a base of operations, not a home, bringing services to the veteran wherever they are whenever they need
