Hull hired as DeWitt County Veteran's Service Officer

 

Many veterans return from active duty and are rarely debriefed as to what benefits they have earned and deserve after military service.
 
Veterans Service Officer J.C. Hull retired from the Air Force after 20 years of service and understands the ‘red tape’ and the ‘running around’ someone may get while trying to retrieve information. Hull was hired last month. He said, “I am here and my primary concern is to help veterans. There is no need to go to Victoria.”
 
The Veterans County Service is not the Veterans Administration.
