Local Military History
Henderson has a rich military history and is noted among all U.S. cities for its role in providing essential resources to our armed forces during World War II and later conflicts. Supplying magnesium and other ores for munitions manufacturing during the Second World War and beyond was essential to arming our troops and constructing the Hoover Dam.
Before and during WWII, Henderson and nearby communities developed a strong Air Force presence. The Las Vegas Army Field, which was later renamed the Nellis Air Force Base, was a critical touch point for our armed forces and is synonymous with Henderson.
The base was used for F-51 Mustang training during the Korean War and for F-80 and F-86 Sabre training later on. Henderson is currently a hub of military activity as it is close to the Creech Air Force Base and the Las Vegas Veteran’s Administration Office, which is an important office for local veterans.
Local Veteran’s Offices
There are a number of offices and organizations in and near Henderson that are essential to the local veteran population. We work with these organizations and offices to ensure that veterans receive the benefits to which they are entitled and to promote veterans’ general well-being.
These offices include:
- The Henderson Vet Center
- The Veterans Administration of Las Vegas
- VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System
We also work with We Serve Vets, which helps pay for veterans-benefit coverage before benefits kick in. Filling the coverage gap is important because it can take up to six to eight weeks for veteran’s benefits to officially begin.
Our goal is to provide essential in home elder care to veterans and to help veterans secure this care. We work with local VA offices and other organizations so that you or a loved one who is a veteran doesn’t have to. It’s our honor to help you.
