The creation of a new Frederick County Veterans Advisory Council moved forward with County Executive Jan Gardner’s announcement that she has submitted a list of nominees to the County Council for confirmation. The advisory group will include members of veterans, military, health, education and related organizations.
“The men and women who served our nation are heroes. We honor their sacrifice and service by supporting them in our community,” said Executive Gardner. “The Veterans Advisory Council will ensure that Frederick County’s 17,000 veterans will receive all the resources they need.”
The Veterans Advisory Council will serve as a conduit for information and resources for veterans and their families who need assistance furthering their education, finding employment, receiving counseling or finding other services.
