Following Black History month where we profiled the new NYC Commissioner of Veterans Affairs, TopVet James Hendon, this month, Women’s History month, we are proud to confer this status on the City’s former Commissioner, Dr. and Brigadier General Loree K. Sutton.
While Dr. Sutton has announced she is a candidate for the Mayor of the City of New York and has the potential to become the first female to hold the office, she represents so much more. As a career psychiatrist in the U.S. Army, she has served on the front lines of the health challenges our military has faced on and off the battlefield for the last four decades. Over the five years, 2015-19 that she held the post of Commissioner, she accomplished an ambitious and important agenda to improve the lives of the City’s veterans in significant ways, as you will learn from reading her profile.
On behalf of all of us at Veterans Advantage, I send our congratulations to the Commissioner on this recognition of her military service and her extraordinary contributions and accomplishments to the country, and to the City of New York.
