Any Veteran residing on the island of St. John that needs assistance can come to the office between these hours and receive the same services they would if they were at the St. Thomas or St. Croix office to include obtaining a local Veteran I.D.

It is strongly recommend that you call the St. Thomas office at 340-774-6100 and schedule an appointment if it is your intent to visit the St. John office. “Setting an appointment will ensure that we have your files available when you arrive. This is also an attempt to live up to our promise to the Veterans that reside on St. John when we told them they will not be left out. Improving the Quality of Life for every Veteran within the territory at every opportunity is what the team within the Office of Veterans Affairs is striving to do. If the need arises to have an additional day added to the St. John schedule in the future we will do just that ”, said Director Farrell.
