CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The Adjutant General of Colorado U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Mike Loh has appointed Brey Hopkins to serve as the Deputy Executive Director of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs effective Jan. 6, 2020.

“Brey has demonstrated exemplary leadership and decision-making during his more than 30 years of military service,” Loh said. “As director of joint plans, operations, and military support for Joint Task Force-Centennial, Brey transformed our National Guard domestic response capabilities and ensured the safety of our Colorado communities.  I am confident that he will continue to positively impact our department in his new role.”

Hopkins received his Army commission as an Infantry officer through the Reserve Officer’s Training Corps at The Citadel Military College of South Carolina in 1989.  Following Active Duty service as an Infantry officer in the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division and 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Hopkins separated from Active Duty and served in positions of executive management in the transportation, logistics and energy sectors, including as both Vice President of Operations and President. 

In 2008, Mr. Hopkins transitioned back to the Colorado National Guard.  In addition to supporting TAG and Governor priorities and initiatives, Mr. Hopkins continues to serve as a traditional National Guard member in the rank of Colonel.

Colorado’s former DMVA DED Michael (Mickey) T. Hunt retired in 2019. Hunt served in the U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard for more than 31 years. He was the DMVA DED for the past 10 years.

The DMVA has three divisions. The division of the National Guard serves our communities, state and nation by providing ready forces for domestic operations, homeland defense, and overseas contingency operations. The Division of Veterans Affairs assists military members, veterans, and their families to access benefits and services and is a statewide training resource for Colorado’s network of State and County Veterans Service Officers. The Division of Veterans Affairs also maintains the Veterans Memorial Cemetery of Western Colorado and the Western Region One Source located in Grand Junction. The Colorado Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, an auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, has three missions: emergency services; aerospace education; cadet programs.
