According to a press release from the Governors office,Governor Matt Mead is looking for two veterans to fill vacant positions on the Wyoming Veterans Commission. 

“I appreciate all of the men and women who take time out of their lives to serve Wyoming and I am now calling on two more people to step forward for this very important commission,” Governor Mead said.

The Veterans Commission has oversight of the Wyoming Veterans Memorial Museum and the Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery. It provides veterans and their families with assistance with their state and federal benefits, healthcare, and Veterans Affairs disability claims. Commissioners also advise the Governor and the Legislature on state and federal legislation affecting veterans.

Commissioners fill positions to represent various areas of the state. The current vacancies are from Laramie and Natrona Counties. Appointments are for three years and Commissioners may request reappointment.

Veterans from Laramie and Natrona Counties interested in filling the vacant positions should complete the application found on the Governor’s web site:
