Veterans

Linn-Benton Community College welcomes and supports veterans who have served, or are currently serving in the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. Please use the links to the left for more information about educational benefits as well as local veterans services.

VA has founded a National Call Center for Homeless Veterans hotline to ensure that homeless veterans or veterans at risk of homelessness have free, 24/7 access to trained counselors. The hotline is intended to assist homeless veterans and their families; VA medical centers; federal, state and local partners; community agencies; service providers; and others in the community.
