Show Notes:

In a special Veteran’s Day episode, President Scott L Wyatt and Steve Meredith sit down with the SUU Veteran’s Resource and Support Center Director Amanda Keller and Executive Director of the Bryce Canyon Association Gayle Pollock to discuss the history of Veteran’s Day, what life can look like after service for veterans, and the resources for veterans in southern Utah.

Featured Quotes:

In great deeds something abides. On great fields something stays. Forms change and pass; bodies disappear, but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls. Generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to see where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field to ponder and dream; And lo! the shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into their souls.
Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Union Brigadier General, US Civil War

So, there are a lot of unique challenges that they [veterans] face . . . when they decide to come back to school. They change from a very structured and very rigid daily life to not so much structure. They sit in classrooms next to the traditional 18 year old. They have different world views, they have this rich knowledge that our traditional students don't have - - and some of that knowledge comes with a little bit of baggage.
Amanda Keller, Director - SUU Veterans Resource and Support Center
