The Veterans Resource Center would like for you to join us by celebrating Veterans Day with a week of events. This year we’re continuing to give back to our community by collecting hygiene supplies, canned goods, and a housing assistance workshop.

The Vietnam War claimed the lives of more than 58,000 American service-members and wounded more than 150,000. In addition, the men and women who served in Vietnam and survived unspeakable horrors, coming home offered its own kind of trauma. On November 7, 2019, the current student veteran leadership would like to properly “Welcome Home” Robert Salazar, a United States Marine Corps Force Recon Vietnam veteran.
