Our county service officer for veterans is retiring in about a month.
Uinta County really needs a service officer. Our County Commissioners are thinking of using the services of the Sweetwater County service officer. The service officer of Sweetwater County is also doing Sublette County as well as Lincoln County.
We need a service officer from our county. Nellie Richens, our service officer, has helped many veterans here in Uinta County. She has an office in Evanston as well as coming to the Valley Senior Center to help vets here in the Valley every week. That would not happen if the county commissioners decide to use the Sweetwater County service officer.
What are our veterans here in Uinta County worth? We will see what our Commissioners think they are worth from the decision they make.
