Patrick Palmersheim - IDVA Director
Patrick J. Palmersheim
Executive Director

Message from the Director:

As Executive Director of the Iowa Department of Veterans Affairs, I believe that we must fully honor our commitment to Iowa’s veterans.

I firmly believe that we must always ensure stakeholder involvement, working hard to extend and expand the department’s critically important relationships with all veterans’ service organizations, county veterans service officers, key leaders, VA officials and many others.

Last but not least, I believe that we must continue strong and positive legislative partnerships, at the state and federal levels and on both sides of the aisle, working in a non-partisan manner to ensure that the needs and the goals of Iowa’s veterans are met.
