Brauchler cites military experience as a priority in hiring

While Veterans Day rolls around once a year, military service is on the minds of the prosecutors in the 18th Judicial District every day.
Before George Brauchler was elected in 2012, the office had no active duty guard or reserve members in its ranks. Now it has six, a nod to the Republican prosecutor’s commitment to employing military members.
“I have a passion for my service, and I know the quality of people the military attracts and develops, specifically in the JAG Corps,” Brauchler said, citing a desire to honor veterans and an aim to pad his team with prosecutors with “top-notch training.”
Brauchler’s office earned recognition for that fact earlier this year when it was announced as the recipient of the Pro Patria award for public sector employers, a recognition from Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve for Colorado employers that go out of their way to accommodate and support National Guard members.
