It's an honor to introduce, the New Mexico Department of Veteran's Services to our audience.
 
The NM Department of Veteran Services assists veterans, their widows, and children in establishing the privilege's which they are legally entitled.  The Department was established in 2003.  It gave veterans a cabinet-level governmental agency to address their needs.
 
We're very fortunate in NM, to have a very talented, and dedicated staff to assist of veterans.  Cabinet Secretary Timothy Hale was confirmed in 2011 by the NM State Legislature, and is joined by Deputy Secretary Alan Martinez.  Alan serves in overseeing all the State benefits, and Services Director. 
 
The entire staff works tirelessly to make sure New Mexico's veteran community are well taken care of. 
 
Thank you, NM Department of Veteran Services.
