The Nevada Office of Veterans Services (NOVS) Veterans Outreach “ROVER” Program will visit Winnemucca and Pershing Community Center in Lovelock. Those visits will allow veterans and family members to meet with a Veterans Service Officer (VSO) and learn about benefits and services they may be eligible for which they may be unaware.
“We continue to ask local businesses, city officials and anyone willing to help us spread the word, to post a flyer [Winnemucca Flyer, Lovelock Flyer] at their location or download and email the flyer to their personal network,” says Executive Director, Kat Miller.

- Tuesday, SEPTEMBER 3 – 9 am – 4 pm …. Winnemucca Armory – 735 West Fourth Street
- Wednesday – SEPTEMBER 4 – 10 am – 2 pm …. Lovelock, Pershing Community Center – 820 6th Street
Veterans and family members can make an appointment to meet with a Veterans Service Officer to discuss their benefits and PRE- SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS ARE SUGGESTED. Walk-in appointments are welcome, but can only be seen as time permits.
“Appointments at some recent locations have filled up prior to the date,” says program supervisor, Scott Fincher. “With help from the community, the word has been getting out and we really encourage veterans or family members to consider making an appointment in advance.”
To schedule an advanced appointment, contact Pamela (775) 688-1653 ext 6 or Barbara at (775) 321-4880. Veterans are advised to bring a copy of their DD-214 discharge document, current VA paperwork, medical information and banking account information. If the claim involves dependants, bring birth certificates, current and prior marriage certificates, divorce decrees, and social security numbers.
The ROVER Program is funded by donations to the Veterans Gift Account that is supported by the Nevada Veterans License Plate Program. With mission-focused employees, NOVS is responsible for the administration of two State Veterans Memorial Cemeteries, a State Veterans Home, and a State-wide Veterans Service Officer program. NOVS is instrumental in connecting Nevada’s veterans and their families with benefits and assistance from both the State and Federal government.
