Veterans and their families can now access a wide variety of valuable information and resources through the new Indianapolis Veteran Services Web site located at

Mayor Greg Ballard has tasked Veteran Service Officer, Russ Eaglin, with connecting Veterans and their families with information regarding federal, state and local benefits, and additional veteran resources which can be found on the Web site and through the Veteran Services social media sites on Facebook and Twitter.

“The men and women that serve our country should be honored each and every day for the sacrifices they make,” said Mayor Ballard. “I have made it a priority of my Administration to help connect veterans with valuable resources, benefits information and business opportunities. Russ brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and I am confident he will be a valuable resource to our local veterans and their families.”

Eaglin, who served in the United States Marine Corps in Vietnam, gained experience working with Veteran service organizations across the state in his role as Veteran Service Representative for the Veterans Administration Regional Office in Indianapolis. Eaglin also currently serves as the State Commandant of the Marine Corps League.

“There is an abundance of resources designed to serve Veterans and their families, but often, connecting with those resources can be overwhelming for individuals in need of services,” said Eaglin. “We created the City's portal to provide a streamlined, user-friendly point of connection between Veterans and the resources they need and deserve.”
