A U.S. Army reservist and staff member for U.S. Sen. Susan Collins has been named Maine’s new director of the Bureau of Veterans’ Services.

Adria Horn will succeed Peter Ogden, who is set to retire in June.

“We are very pleased that Ms. Horn has agreed to take on this important and challenging duty for our state,” Brig. Gen. James Campbell, commissioner of Maine’s Department of Defense, Veterans and Emergency Management, said in a statement. “She is highly qualified and is exactly the right person to take over the bureau at this time.”

Horn, a graduate of West Point, is a U.S. Army Reservist with the U.S. Pacific Command and has deployed overseas five times in her 14-year career. She also has been a member Collins’ state office staff.

Ogden, a Vietnam Var veteran, served 28 years, first in the U.S. Army and later in the Maine Army National Guard. He has been Maine’s director of veterans’ services since 2004.

“Mr. Ogden has served our veterans and their families for many years in a selfless and exemplary manner – as he transitions to his planned and well-deserved retirement, we wish him and his family well and thank them for their dedicated service and many sacrifices,” Campbell said.
