Student Veterans of America
November 1, 2012

As a student veteran when I first entered the college environment I felt lost. I was ten years older than my counterparts and no one seemed to understand what I was going through. When I discovered that my school had a small group of veterans that met regularly I knew I had to get involved because at least those veterans could understand what I was going through. After being an active member in the club I eventually became the President. As the President of my college's veteran club I felt it was my responsibility to seek out organizations that help veterans and provide my fellow veterans with the resources to meet any challenge. When I realized there was a national organization that did exactly that I knew we had to become a part of it. After registering my club with the SVA I continued to try and implement ideas that they made us aware of through publications of best practices for student run organizations as well as encouraging everyone I knew to apply for the scholarships or internship support that the SVA provides. The Student Veterans of America has been an invaluable resource ever since and while I turned over leadership to the next generation, they continue to utilize the SVA as best they can.
