We are pleased to announce that VLGMF Fellow CW4 Jose Vargas has accepted a job offer as the Fleet Maintenance Supervisor with the City of Overland Park, KS. This is an amazing opportunity for Jose with a Veteran friendly local government.
Overland Park, Kansas, serves as our first VLGMF sponsor in Kansas and has multiple veterans leading key positions with the City. Jose is expected to begin in his new position at Overland Park in September. We also expect to see Jose serve as a mentor for other veterans seeking careers in local government management who are transitioning from Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
Jose retires from the U.S. Army after 24 years of service culminating as a Brigade Senior Maintenance Warrant Officer where he administered a 35 million dollar budget in an organization of 4,500 personnel. Jose received his Bachelor of Arts in Management from Wayland Baptist University. We wish Jose and his family the best of luck in transition to their new community.
