Hamilton County hires first-ever veteran services officer to help local veterans

Hamilton County has hired its first-ever veteran services officer to assist the county’s vets with benefit claims and other needs.

Charles Alsobrook, a Trenton, Ga., native, discussed his reasons for taking on the new challenge and his years of service to Georgia veterans during a recent interview at his office at the Chattanooga/Hamilton County Development Resource Center on Market Street. He was one of 136 people who responded when the county announced it was seeking applicants for the position this summer.

More than 25,000 veterans live in Hamilton County, nearly double those he helped in his last job.
