Singh, former Adjutant General of Maryland, and her company will support VES as it expands its work with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and other veteran service organizations. VES supports the VA in its mission to provide veterans and transitioning service members throughout the benefit exam and claims process.
“The mission of VES has always been to provide quality and timely evaluations for those who bravely served our country, performed by trained professionals in a respectful and hospitable environment,” said Teresa Weipert, General Manager, Maximus Federal. “With her extensive background in military and veteran affairs, the addition of Major Gen.

As a veteran, I know firsthand what it’s like to go through the benefit process, and I’m motivated to extend the work already in progress to improve the veteran experience.”
