Val’s Journey

Dr. Valbrun (Val) Almonord was born in Haiti and immigrated to New York in 1969. Despite working on a factory line in Brooklyn while attending high school, he pursued higher education, earning an AA from LaGuardia Community College and a BA from Hunter College. Driven by a deep admiration for American democratic principles, he felt compelled to serve his new country.

After completing his undergraduate studies, Dr. Almonord enlisted in the U.S. Army Active Duty, later transitioning to the U.S. Army Reserves. During his nine years of military service, he attended medical school at Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. Dr. Almonord furthered his education with a Certificate in Sustaining Base Leadership and Management from Army Management Staff College and an MS in Healthcare Management from Troy University.

Upon graduating from medical school, Dr. Almonord dedicated four years to the National Health Service Corps in a medically underserved area before becoming a civilian federal employee in the Military Health Care System, first with the U.S. Air Force and later with the U.S. Army. After 35 years of federal service, he retired from Martin Army Community Hospital in Fort Moore (Fort Benning), Georgia.

A lifelong Democrat, Dr. Almonord has been a dedicated advocate for Georgia families throughout his career. He has served as the Vice Chair of the Muscogee County Democratic Committee, Chair of the Outreach Committee of Muscogee County, and the Muscogee County delegate to the Democratic Party of Georgia. Dr. Almonord continues to utilize his military and civilian experience to advocate for federal government employees as the legislative and political coordinator for the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Local 54 in Fort Moore, Georgia.
