Adjutant, Maurice R. Portillo

I’m originally from Silver City, and then from Las Cruces where I graduated from NMSU. I am a proud Aggie! I am also a proud graduate of Paws and Stripes of Albuquerque and a member of the Veteran Advisory Council. I enjoy nothing more than the company and support of my fellow veterans. I am a Past Commander of Rio Rancho Chapter 5, and it’s been my home Chapter since I joined the DAV. As your new Adjutant, I am going to embrace New Mexico’s veterans, and through our Chapters, provide those valuable services so many are still lacking. Although this State Department has suffered, the successes are equally evident. I ask you for your support as I advise our Department Officers and my fellow appointees. Your compliance with the Constitution and Bylaws will undoubtedly help this State Department to operate more efficiently and much more effectively. With more efficient operations, we can better support Chapters and you.
