INYO COUNTY, CA, February 18, 2021 – The County of Inyo is pleased to announce that the Inyo/Mono Veterans Services Officer (VSO) has been successfully filled by Inyo County resident, Gordon Greene.

Since July 2020 veterans have received assistance remotely through Kern County Veterans Service Office. Inyo County flew an open recruitment for the VSO, and five qualified candidates were selected for interview.  On Feb 16, the Inyo County Board of Supervisors made an official appointment of a new VSO after completing thorough interviews.

The interview panel included the Inyo County Administrator, two local veterans, and the Los Angeles Supervisor of Veterans Claims. The panel sent four of the five candidates to the Inyo County Board of Supervisors for final review and interviews.

After joining the Navy in 1995, Greene’s impressive military history included:

  • Attending the Naval Hospital Corps School from December 1995 – April, 1996 where he received extensive training in various aspects of the medical field ranging from medical terminology, physiology and anatomy, and emergency medical care.
  • In 1996, Greene was assigned to Field Medical Service Technician School in Camp Johnson where he earned his Field Medical Service Technician designation.  Greene was educated in phlebotomy, IV therapy, and combat injuries. Additionally, he received training in firearms, battlefield tactics, and the structure and history of the US Marine Corps.
  • Upon completion of Field Medical Service School, Greene was assigned to the Naval Air Station (NAS) in Brunswick, ME in the General Medicine Clinic where he provided medical support for various air squadrons as well as base personnel and their dependents.
  • Greene was later assigned to the First Aid Station where he, along with an Independent Duty Corpsman, provided emergency medical care to injured active-duty personnel.  During his time at NAS Brunswick, he provided first aid classes to local civilian groups and provided services as a Nationally Registered EMT. 
  • Greene served the remainder of his time in the Navy at NAS Brunswick until honorably discharged in 1998.   

Additionally, Greene has worked for Toiyabe Dialysis Center & Davita Dialysis Center, Inyo County Juvenile Center, and most recently for Inyo County Health and Human Services as an Eligibility and Employment Integrated Case Worker.

“Inyo and Mono Counties have one of the highest percentages of veterans in the state of California,” stated Inyo County Board Chairperson and Second District Supervisor, Jeff Griffiths. “It is important to our community that we take care of those who have served our nation. I am so proud that Gordon has answered the call to serve as our Veterans Service Officer.”
