Caleb S. Cage was appointed as Chief of the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security Advisor on July 6, 2015. He is a graduate of the United States Military Academy, West Point, where, upon graduation in 2002, he was commissioned as a Field Artillery officer and was assigned to the 1st Infantry Division in Bamberg, Germany. During this period, he served as a company executive officer and later as a motorized rifle platoon leader in the city of Baqubah, Iraq.
Caleb’s military career spanned five years and various positions, including Fire Direction Officer, Executive Officer, and Battery Commander. He also served a second yearlong tour in Iraq in 2006 as a Corps Information Operations battle captain in the Corps Joint Operations Center in Baghdad.
Upon separating from the Army, Cage began his civilian career as a Senior Policy Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor, where he developed and managed several successful outreach initiatives aimed at serving Nevada’s veterans. In 2010, he was appointed to serve as Executive Director of the Nevada Office of Veterans Services (NOVS), a cabinet-level agency responsible for serving veterans through two state veteran cemeteries, a comprehensive veterans service officer program, and 180-bed long term care skilled nursing facility.
In addition to these efforts, Cage also established Nevada’s Green Zone Initiative, an effort to improve outcomes for veterans through policy development, service provider coordination, and outreach. Because of the success of his work in these areas, Cage was asked to move into the position of Director of Military and Veterans Policy, a newly-created position in the Office of Governor Brian Sandoval in August of 2013.
