V.I. Office of Veterans Affairs Opens for Business

The flags of the United States of America and the Veterans Affairs Administration

The Virgin Islands Office of Veterans Affairs (VA) is taking all necessary steps to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In order to protect veterans, their families and the staff of the VA, it is limiting in-person operations territory-wide. Every effort will be made to take care of requests via telephonic or electronic means. Note: Call the VA before coming to the office in either location. If necessary, alternate arrangements will be made to ensure that all inquiries are addressed.

“One thing I want to make absolutely clear, is that we are open for business,” said Director Patrick Farrell.

For all inquiries, the Veterans Affairs office asks that people call 774-8387 to get in contact with the St. Thomas office or 773-8387 to get in contact with the St. Croix office.

Any further updates can be heard on “The Veterans Voice” radio show, from 7-8 p.m., Tuesday evenings on 107.9 FM.
