Wyoming Veterans Commission

The Wyoming Veterans Commission’s mission is to develop, enhance, and promote programs, services, and benefits for Wyoming veterans and their families, through outreach, education, communication, and legislation. Working in partnership with the Wyoming state government, the Wyoming Military Department, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, and Veterans Service Organizations, the commission strives to improve the quality of life of every Wyoming veteran.

The Commission was founded in 1981 for the purpose of receiving federal funding to establish the Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery, in Evansville. The Wyoming Veterans Commission has 12 Governor-appointed commissioners who serve for staggered terms from the various Wyoming Judicial Districts.

The commission has oversight of the Veterans Service Officers, Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery, Wyoming Veterans Memorial Museum, Wyoming National Guard Museum, and Military Records.
