News report: Veterans’ impact at UW-Green Bay growing in size, scope
A front-page article in Wednesday’s Green Bay Press-Gazette draws attention to a growing trend on college campuses, including UW-Green Bay: More veterans are enrolling.

She also said many veterans return from duty with disabilities or emotional issues. “In addition to academic support, they need health and counseling services,” Koltz said. “We need to think about how to deal with a vet coming back. Many have disabilities we can’t see.” The paper also interviewed National Guardsman and UW-Green Bay student Sam Seefeld, president of the Vets 4 Vets Club on campus. Read the entire article.
