Sandoval will keep veterans services chief

(AP) – Nevada Gov.-elect Brian Sandoval says he will reappoint Caleb Cage as director of veterans services.

The Republican governor-elect announced his intent Thursday as the nation observed Veterans Day.

Cage is a Reno native who was first appointed to the post in July by outgoing Gov. Jim Gibbons.

A 2002 graduate of West Point, Cage achieved the rank of captain. He served in Iraq and was awarded the Army’s Bronze Star medal.

The state Office of Veterans Services provides assistance to Nevada’s veterans, active military personnel and their families. It also oversees two veteran memorial cemeteries and the Nevada State Veterans Home.
