Office of Veterans Affairs Columbus, Ohio is home to over 110,000 veterans. You may see their face everyday yet not know the great sacrifices they have made - sacrifices made for you and their country. The City of Columbus, Department of Veterans Affairs' main priority is to our City Employees and making sure their rights and benefits are being protected. We also sponsor an outreach program for military and veterans families called Operation Unity, assist with the local Flag Day ceremonies, Veterans Day, the annual Stand Down program, and provides assistance with referrals.

If you or your Veterans Organization has information or suggestions, please feel free to e-mail Zane D. Jones at
