Welcome to WIlco (2)

Williamson County named retired Army Sergeant Michael Hernandez as the director of Veteran Services. 

The Williamson County Commissioners Court selected Hernandez, who will start his new role on Wednesday, Nov. 1. 

Hernandez previously served as the senior assistant veteran service officer for Hays County, claims benefit advisor II for Texas Veterans Commission and assistant veteran service officer I for Guadalupe County. 

"We are very excited to have someone with a true passion for helping veterans as our new director of Veteran Services," said County Judge Bill Gravell. "Michael walks the walk when it comes to assisting veterans and getting them the benefits they deserve." 

"I am excited to join the Williamson County team and look forward to continuing serving the veteran community," said Hernandez.  

Hernandez graduated from Texas State University with a bachelor's degree in Applied Sociology and is accredited by the Texas Veterans Commission and the National Association of County Veterans Service Officers to represent veterans and their eligible dependents. He currently serves as chairman for the Texas Veterans Commission’s County Veteran Service Officer Advisory Committee. 

As the director of Veteran Services, Hernandez will oversee the Veteran Services Department that serves approximately 40,000 veterans and their family members in Williamson County.
