MENDOCINO COUNTY, Calif. – Mendocino County Health and Human Services Agency is pleased to announce Ulyses Lopez as its new veteran services officer.

Lopez is a native of Mendocino County, where he has worked for the past five years as a veteran services representative in the Fort Bragg office.

In this position, he assisted veterans to enroll in Veterans Administration health care, service-connected compensation, pension and other veteran-related benefits, in addition to being a strong advocate for veterans in Mendocino County.

Lopez served in the U.S. Army from 2002 to 2005. He had a 15-month tour in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom where he was awarded a Combat Infantryman Badge and a Presidential Unit Citation.

In 2013, he was named “Veteran of the Year” for the Second Assembly District, by former State Assemblymember Wes Chesbro for his service to veterans.

“I am honored to have the privilege of serving the veterans of my community,” Lopez said. “I have accumulated a vast knowledge throughout the years to help veterans navigate through the VA system when acquiring their earned benefits.”

In fiscal year 2016-17, Mendocino County Veteran Services had 2,468 walk-in appointments, resulting in 917 new applications.

If you or someone you know is a veteran in Mendocino County, please refer them to either the Ukiah or Fort Bragg offices, where one of our Veteran Services Representatives will be happy to schedule an appointment.
