In November 2013, the Atlanta City Council approved a resolution establishing the Atlanta Commission on Veteran Affairs for the purpose of serving in an advisory capacity on legislative issues affecting the city’s military population. The advisory commission was formed at the recommendation of Council President Ceasar C. Mitchell. “The creation of the Atlanta Commission on Veteran’s Affairs is vitally important as we create and provide services to the men and women who have served our country through military service,” said Council President Mitchell. “Our veterans often have unique challenges and the Commission will help ensure that those challenges are met in a way that best serves those who sacrificed for our country.”
 
The Atlanta Commission on Veteran Affairs will consist of nine voting members, including two representatives appointed by the mayor, two by the City Council president, three by the City Council, one by the Fulton County Commission, and one from the Georgia Department of Veterans Services.
