Did You Serve in The Military?  Do You have a Family Member Who Served in the Military? Learn more about the Veterans Services Specialist Program (VSS Program)

All Maryland State Government Departments and Agencies have a Veterans Services Specialist or “liaison” who can provide general information to State employees who have served in the military or who have family members who have served in the military with information on veteran-related resources.  They can also answer general questions citizens may have about these resources.  The Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) Outreach and Advocacy Program works alongside liaisons to share information and improve veteran services coordination.

Below are links to Maryland State agencies that have programs available. Select the agency to locate specific program information and who to contact at the agency.
