Commissioner Marsh assumes regional leadership position

Retired Navy Rear Adm. Clyde Marsh, commissioner of the Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs, is now the vice president of the National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs (NASDVA) Southeast Region.

State VA directors elected Marsh to the position at the NASDVA’s annual conference in September.

As the region’s vice president, Marsh will lead and coordinate veterans’ advocacy initiatives on behalf of the association for states that include: Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee.

NASDVA consist of top veterans affairs officials from all 50 states and territories. The association advocates benefits and services for veterans by working closely with Congress, the federal Department of Veterans Affairs, veteran service organizations and the Department of Defense.

The State Board of Veterans Affairs appointed Marsh as commissioner of the Alabama VA department in October, 2005. By a unanimous vote, the board nominated him for a second term that began in October 2009.

My Photo

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
