The Island County Veterans Advisory Board is looking for new members.

The group is responsible for communicating to the Island County commissioners the needs of indigent veterans, the resources available to them, and programs that could benefit veterans and their families. Service on the board is voluntary, though expenses are reimbursed.

According to a recent news release, the goal is to have a diverse board of men and women who served in the military during any past conflict, including Vietnam, the Gulf War, Bosnia and post 9-11 operations, at home or abroad.

Those interested in applying should email Island County Veterans Services Coordinator Dana Sawyers at or call her at 360-632-7328.
