Maine Veterans' Services was established in 1947. The Bureau's main office is located at Camp Keyes in Augusta. The Bureau comes under the Department of Defense, Veterans and Emergency Management. In addition to the main office, the Bureau has seven field service offices strategically located throughout the state and a claims office located at the US Department of Veterans Affairs, Togus, Maine.

Our intent is to ensure that Maine veterans and their dependents receive all entitlements due under the law, are relieved to the extent possible of financial hardship, receive every opportunity for self-improvement through higher education and are affored proper recognition for their service and sacrifice to the Nation.
