Salvador J. Castillo is an U.S. Air Force Veteran. He was assigned to the 43 SFS Squadron in Pope Airfield, Ft. Bragg, NC in support of the 82nd Airborne Division from 1998-2002 as a Security Forces Member where he was deployed in 2000 in support of Operation Southern Watch and later deployed in late 2001 as a response to the 9/11 attacks under Operation Noble Eagle later to become Operation Enduring Freedom. In July of 2006-2008, he joined the U.S. Army National Guard.

Salvador J. Castillo after returning to civilian life, was employed with Child Protective Services as an Investigator. In 2010, he was hired as the Assistant Veterans Service Officer for Cameron County and a year later would be appointed to be the Director for the Veterans Service Officer to present. During his time as a Veterans County Service Officer, he was able to duplicate the amount of staff, obtain a new building, secure a TVC grant for supportive services in the amount of $300,000, and increase the productivity of the office without compromising accuracy as claims submitted through my department have a 98% approval rating. In addition, he was instrumental in the development and establishment of the Cameron County Veteran’s Court. Throughout his 10 years as a VCSO, he has been involved in various intergovernmental projects at all levels of government.

He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Social Studies 8 -12 grade from The University of Texas at Brownsville, and later his Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Texas-Pan American.

“It is my passion to empower veterans to be as productive and esteemed in civilian life as they were while service men and women. While overseas I served my country and always felt that I wanted to do more, working with veterans provides me the opportunity to fulfill this desire as I am serving those who have served and their families.”

I am proud to be a part of the Texas Veterans Commission and Veterans County Service Officers team as we fulfill our mission to advocate for veterans and their families through the attainment of benefits.
