The Medina County Veterans Service Commission is a five member board composed of five residents of the county appointed to five-year terms by a judge of the court of common pleas. Each is appointed to represent a specific veterans organization – in our county, currently  The American Legion, American Veterans (AMVETS), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA).  Even though their appointment is from a specific organization, they represent all Medina County Veterans and their families.

The Commission oversees the operation of the Medina County Veterans Service Office, and is responsible to ensure that veterans and their eligible family members receive all benefits – federal, state, and local – to which they have earned.

The Medina County Veterans Service Commission holds an open public meeting at 4:00 pm the 2nd Thursday of every month in our office’s boardroom.

Currently, the Medina County Veterans Service Commission is comprised of the following members:

Jim Hoessle
Secretary

Randall Schmidt
President

Phillip Grassa
Commissioner

Joe Destro
Vice President

Jack Forster
