George Kauffman is the veterans service officer in Frederick for the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs.
George E. Kauffman is the veterans services officer for the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs.He has an office on the second floor of the state tax wing at the Frederick County Courthouse.
Visit his office just about any weekday, and it won't be long before a veteran comes in to inquire about benefits, services and entitlements.Veterans need to be prepared, whether they're about to leave the service or served decades ago.But they need to bring their DD-214.That's the post-World War II name for discharge papers.
"What George does is he cuts out the garbage," said Curtis Callender, one of the veterans Mr. Kauffman has gotten to know in the past five years.
"There is no time limit on submitting your initial claim," Mr. Kauffman said.
Mr. Kauffman counts himself among the people he serves.He spent 30 years in the Navy on aircraft carriers.It's important to Mr. Kauffman that the ships he served on get mentioned.That sort of information is important to the military people he serves, he said.
He served on the USS Bonhamme Richard, a CVA-31; the USS Oriskany, a CVA 34; the USS Shangri La, which he proudly said is the only aircraft carrier paid for with private donations; the USS America, a CVA-66; the USS Nimitz, a CVN-68; and the USS Roosevelt.He retired in January 1992 after 30 years, and began working as a veterans services officer in 1995.
He worked for the VFW before he went to work for the state office.He said he knows from experience that veterans don't always trust the system, but they always trust another veteran.
Compensation and care
Mr. Kauffman suggests injured or disabled vets have an advocate -- a spouse, parent or child -- to help them monitor their benefits.Once a veteran has a service-connected disability, he or she is entitled to monthly payments of $112 for the least disabled to $2,393 for those considered 100 percent disabled.
Disabilities can be physical, mental or a little of both.Being a prisoner of war automatically qualifies a veteran for at least some disability benefits.
Veterans whose disabilities are considered 100 percent, or permanent and total, according to Mr. Kauffman, get some privileges.
Col. Jeff Roller, who was getting ready to retire from a career as an Army surgeon, came to see Mr. Kauffman at the urging of fellow veteran Mr. Callender.
"If you don't have someone like George, well, he goes over your medical history.
"Guys like George are the eyes and ears for those of us who have been out of the military for a while."

George Kauffman, area supervisor for the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs, said the Hagerstown office started offering full-time assistance in January 2009, but the hours were reduced shortly thereafter because one of the employees was transferred to a more-productive office in Cumberland.
During that time, the Hagerstown office was only open on Tuesdays, Kauffman said. It returned to full-time status in June.
Kauffman said the Hagerstown office could return to part-time status, or even close, if it doesn't produce.
