County's Veterans Service officer recognized for 40 years of service

Posted: Updated:

A long-time veterans service officer for Scotts Bluff County has been recognized for 40 years of his service by the county commissioners.
 
Earlier this week, Chairman Mark Masterton presented John Brehm with an award for his 40 years of service to the Veterans Services office of Scotts Bluff County.

Family and friends say Brehm is an advocate for military veterans as he works countless of hours.

This latest award can be added to Brehm's list of appreciations.

Last fall, the American Legion Club awarded Brehm the American Citizen Award of 2013.

And commissioners renamed the local veterans memorial park in Gering in his honor.

Brehm says he was thankful for the award.
 
"It's been a long 40 years but it's been fun." He smiled.
 
Brehm says he doesn't look to retire anytime soon because he loves what he's doing.
