FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Larry R. King, 215.348.6413, lrking@buckscounty.org

The Bucks County’s Office of Military Affairs has moved to a new home in the Administration Building in Doylestown Borough.

For many years, the office has assisted countless numbers of Bucks County’s military veterans at the Neshaminy Manor Center on Almshouse Road in Doylestown Township.

As of Tuesday, Oct. 9, Military Affairs Director Dan Fraley and his staff began working on the second floor of the Administration Building – formerly known as the Bucks County Courthouse – at 55 East Court Street in Doylestown.

To reach the office, visitors should enter the main entrance facing Court Street and, after passing through security, immediately turn left through the single door. Security personnel can help with directions.

With approximately 47,000 veterans residing here, Bucks County has the fourth-largest veterans’ population in Pennsylvania.

Among the services provided through Fraley’s office are assistance with service-connected disability claims; pensions; VA healthcare applications; dependents’ and survivors’ benefits; requests for military medals and awards; burial and memorial benefits; state and county veterans’ benefits; requests for DD214 forms, personnel files and service records; veteran discount program ID cards (by appointment only); and free transportation to the VA Medical Centers in Philadelphia and Coatesville.

To reach the office by phone, please call 215-345-3307. The new fax number is 215-345-3278.
