The Veterans Service Organization (VSO) The Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) will effectively close all offices and transfer all Veterans to accredited Service Officers of other VSOs effective June 30, 2018. Schools can read the official notice from MOPH here.

Veteran students affected by this can ensure that they are fully transitioned to an accredited Service Officer of another VSO. When students transition to a new VSO, if the VSO is their Power of Attorney (POA), they need to notify the Department of Veterans Affairs (Education Service) so their records can be promptly updated. Students can notify Department of Veterans Affairs (Education Service) through mail or through the Internet Inquiry System.
