(SANTA FE, NM) – Former U.S. Army Major Bryan Osterhage has been named Deputy Secretary for the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services (DVS).

 

The native of Belleville, Illinois, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from Truman State University in 2004, and a law degree from the Saint Louis University School of Law.

"I am extremely pleased to welcome Bryan to the DVS family,” said Secretary Griego. "He comes highly recommended.
