The management and staff of the Virgin Islands Office of Veterans Affairs has initiated a new communication platform for Virgin Islands veterans. This platform is another effort to continue working towards Governor Bryan’s quest to bring the V.I. government current with today’s technology.

Veterans interested in being kept abreast of all information relating to them are asked to text the word VIVets (no spaces) to 888-652-8387. This text will generate a welcome message from the V.I. Office of Veterans Affairs. Subsequently, a veteran will be prompted to provide name, phone number, email address, branch of service and dates of service. After these two small steps are completed, there will be no further information required.

“We project that this platform will be the missing link as it relates to our veterans being notified without missing a beat. We encourage our veterans to access this platform as soon as possible,” said Director Patrick Farrell.

If there are any further questions, call the office at one of the following numbers:

774-VETS (8387) on St. Thomas/St. John or

773-VETS (8387) on St. Croix.
