Veteran Services Staff Spotlight: George Cassidy

"Let's get the mission done."

George Cassidy is Denver County's Veteran Service Officer. He works with the Veterans Services team here in Denver Human Services.

Denver County has 40,000 veterans, and George is one of their go-to advocates. He is accredited with the VA to file benefit claims on a veteran’s behalf, and can check in with the VA directly about individual cases. More than that, he builds comradery and support for vets. He starts by making common ground, asking about a vet's service.
