VA social worker arrives

Oct 8, 2018

Marianas Veterans’ requests for more staffing at the Veterans Health Administration Office on Saipan were fulfilled. Mr. William Moore has come on board as a clinical social worker. I worked with the VA leadership over the course of many months to help make this possible.

A retired Air Force Major, Moore served as an embedded Combat and Operational Stress Control officer with the 10th Mountain Division of the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. He has had a leadership role in the Air Force suicide prevention program, as well as programs addressing substance abuse, domestic violence, child abuse, and mental health/life skills. From his duty station on Saipan Mr. Moore will visit Rota and Tinian regularly to provide services there. He is also trained in telehealth so he can provide services to veterans directly in their homes over the internet. And he intends to work with other partner agencies in the Marianas, sharing his experience in suicide prevention.

I welcome Mr. Moore to our community.
