Just think, only three years ago Rutgers didn’t have any type of Veterans Program and now they are receiving national recognition. It goes to show you don’t have to jump through hoops to make it happen you just need to make a plan and stick to it!
I love support like this for our Veterans and I certainly thought it was worth highlighting. Does anyone have any great stories about how a local college or university, alma mater or other frame of reference, went out of the way to support the veteran or the military spouse? What did they do to help the service member improve themselves even more to become a top notch part of our society? I’d really love to hear your stories!
I can assure you noble-veterans aren’t looking for hand-outs. They have worked and earned their right to be called a veteran. They do deserve the support we can show them. Employment, education, a place to call their own. I just don’t think that is too much to ask.
Thank you to the businesses that go out of their way to extend a hand!
