Timothy Moore has been hired as the Iredell County Veterans Services manager.
Iredell County Manager Beth Mull announced Moore’s hiring on Thursday.
“Tim has a clear love and passion for serving veterans. His energy, coupled with his determination to be a strong advocate for our veterans, makes him a great addition to the Iredell County team,” Mull said.
Moore will begin his new position on April 4. He succeeds Brad Stroud, who retired on December 30, 2021.
A medically retired noncommissioned officer in the U.S. Army, Moore is a veteran of the War on Terror with deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan in support of Operation: Iraqi Freedom from 2009-2010 and Operation: Enduring Freedom from 2011-2012.
Upon his retirement, he relocated to North Carolina and began his life of advocacy as a Veteran Services Employment Specialist with Goodwill Career Connections in Catawba, Alexander, and Caldwell counties. He later accepted a job with the N.C. Department of Military and Veterans Affairs as the lead veterans service officer and office manager for the Morganton Veteran Service Center and was later transferred to the Hickory Veteran Service Center.
Moore earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology and human services from Montreat College. He is pursuing a master’s degree in public administration.
Through his advocacy, Moore has helped countless veterans to have their voices heard within the Department of Veterans Affairs, allowing them to receive federal benefits and access to healthcare throughout the 15-county district that he has represented, which includes Iredell County.
