Veteran's Services Officer, Brian Oney briefs Commissioners in Public Hearing

In August 2016, Mesa County Commissioners adopted a Resolution appointing Brian Oney as the Mesa County Veterans Services Officer (VSO) for a term of 2 years. This appointment was made simultaneously with a Resolution to approve a Contract with Hilltop Community Services for the employment of a full-time Veterans Services Officer.

Brian is a United States Marine Corps veteran and has served as the Public Information Officer for Echo Company 2nd Battalion during his deployment. He has knowledge and experience to help veterans in our community.

In the first six months as Mesa County VSO, Brian has made 753 veteran contacts, had 261 office visits, and 56 service connected claims submitted. These numbers are more than double the numbers from the prior year.
