Local Resources and Programs for Veterans

Home to the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, the world's largest Marine Corps training base, the City of Twentynine Palms understandably has a large veteran population. To help honor those who have served, the City offers veterans a variety of local resources and programs that provide support and assistance. 
"Twentynine Palms would not be the community it is today without our veterans, and we are thankful for their dedication to our country and the sacrifices they have made," said Mayor Steven Bilderain. "We hope more veterans take advantage of our local resources and programs that are available to help."
The City of Twentynine Palms, along with many other local organizations, offer a variety of services that assist veterans with benefits and documentation including education benefits, pension benefits, medical applications and disability compensation. The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Morongo Basin Chapter #60 is available every Thursday from 10AM to 3PM at the Luckie Park Activity Center (74325 Joe Davis Drive). The DAV offers assistance with such tasks as filing for VA benefits and helping individuals who are leaving active-duty to transition back to civilian life. 
Additionally, each September, the City of Twentynine Palms hosts an annual Veterans Resource Fair where representatives from several organizations assist with VA claims, County veteran ID cards, VA healthcare and more services. Also, according to Municipal Code Chapter 5.01.140, honorably discharged veterans who are disabled are exempt from paying a City business license fee, though an application must be filed to operate a business.
