The New Mexico Department of Veterans Services has hired a social worker and veteran as the Veterans Service Officer in the Roswell field office.
Navy veteran Danielle Thompson will work in the Southeast Main Street office to assist veterans, their eligible dependents and their widows with filing for their federal or state veterans’ benefits, the Department of Veterans Services announced.
Thompson previously worked for the New Mexico Human Services Department, where she was a family assistance analyst for the agency’s Income Support Division.
A U.S. Navy veteran, she enlisted shortly after graduating from Ruidoso High School in 2007. She served two deployments in support of Iraq operations during her service.
