In an effort to recognize the men and women whose high school education was interrupted due to their military service or their internment in a Japanese American relocation camp, the offices of the county Superintendent of Schools and the county Department of Veterans Affairs once again hosted Operation Recognition - Veterans Diploma Project.
Through Operation Recognition – Veterans Diploma Project, eligible applicants (those who left school to serve in the military during war time and were discharged honorably or those interned in a Japanese American relocation camp) received their high school diplomas.
For five years (2007-2011) the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors has supported this holiday collection drive coordinated by County Veterans Affairs. This project gave the residents and employees of San Bernardino County an opportunity to show their support for our men and women in uniform, and their families here at home.
To honor the commitment and sacrifice of our veterans, military and their families, and to promote awareness of their contributions and unique challenges, the department identifies and obtains benefits and services through advocacy, outreach and education, thereby contributing to the quality of life and well being of our communities.
To be an agency that is well trusted both from within, as well as outside the community to provide clear, accurate, and timely information and assistance concerning veterans services and benefits. To be an organization that is fully integrated with other benefit delivery programs. Our ultimate aim is to provide the highest quality of service to the veteran community and, thereby, impart a positive image of county government.
