New Bighorn Basin Veterans Service Officer

A graduate of Cody High School, who's recently separated from the U.S. Marine Corps, has been appointed the new state Veterans Service Officer for the Bighorn Basin by the Wyoming Veterans Commission.

As the new service officer, Brad Cline will be available to help the state's veterans and their families access and apply for state and federal benefits, enroll in healthcare plans and file disability and pension claims.

According to a release issued from the veterans commission, he'll be based out of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services office in Cody, but will be traveling the Bighorn Basin area to meet personally with veterans and family members in their own hometowns.

Bob Craft is the director of the veterans services for the state commission. He said Cline will be a “tremendous asset” to veterans as they navigate the complex systems for benefits.

Cline is completing his training, which will result in accreditation by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and cross-accreditation with the American Legion. The new service officer is already taking appointments, which can be made by calling the office or sending a personal email note.

The number and address are: 307-587-5859, cell 307- 250-3890, or via email at brad.cline@wyo.gov.
