County names new veterans service officer

Darcy Hoffman will help fellow veterans apply for benefits, services

Posted

Larkspur resident and former U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard staff Sgt. Darcy Hoffman is the newest U.S. veteran giving back to fellow service members in Douglas County.

Appointed by the Board of Douglas County Commissioners to a two-year term, Hoffman will serve as one of four volunteer veterans service officers in the county’s office, according to a news release. As part of her duties, she will assist other veterans and their dependents in applying for VA benefits and eligible services.

“One of the greatest services one can choose to make in their lifetime is that of serving their country,” Lora Thomas, vice chair of the Board of Douglas County Commissioners, said in the release. “We want the nearly 20,000 veterans living in Douglas County to know about the many benefits offered by the Office of Veterans Affairs and how to determine eligibility.”

Hoffman said in the release she is honored to serve her fellow service members by creating awareness of and advocacy for available services to improve veteran livelihood while building camaraderie within the veteran community.
