New Department of Military and Veterans Affairs opens

RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory joined nearly 200 veterans and service members at the Seaboard Building to celebrate the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony of the newly created Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.

“In my State of the State address nine months ago, I outlined our vision to improve how we care for and support our veterans and military through the creation of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs,” McCrory said. “Today is an important step in building on our accomplishments and reinforcing North Carolina’s reputation as one of the most military and veteran friendly states in the country.”

The department was created to streamline all services and initiatives aimed at assisting veterans, active duty military, military installations and communities and military families. The department will focus on connecting veterans and military families with jobs and vital services, while protecting military installations and the communities around them.
