A Student Veteran's Voice

The student veteran’s transition to higher education is unique compared to other student populations. The experience of deployment, return, and in many cases redeployment complicates students’ transitions, and the experience of war adds complexity to the process that we are still struggling to understand. At a FIDES faculty and staff training, Dusty Ginsbach shares his experience returning to college after a deployment to Afghanistan.
