Writing As A Veteran
I can't write very well. I cannot write very well. I don't like to write. I do not like to write. Over the
past four years our teachers gave us various types of papers to challenge us to be better writers.
Thinking back I always felt like a good writer and writing seemed to come easier to me. "Wow, you
should be an author" was one of the very first things a colleague looking over my paper stated.
"With Veteran's day right around the corner, you will have the choice to write a research paper

Essay On Veterans
Over the course of this past year the Veterans Success Center (VSC) has made huge strides in being
more visible and more involved with other areas across campus. I wanted to concentrate on reaching

advantage of some of the services offered. Lunch time is by far one of the busiest times for the
VSC as well as early mornings and late evenings.
Outreach and events have become some of the larger focuses. In order to accomplish this the VSC
worked collaboratively with several other clubs and organizations such as the student–veterans club,
WOU Student Veterans of America. We developed closer relationships with ASWOU, Abbey's
House, Stonewall Center, Campus Dining and Housing. Some examples of our successful events
include: education Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day markers along Monmouth Ave.,Veterans Day
student–veteran panel, Memorial Day Banquet, Campus–wide Easter Egg Hunt, Toys for Tots float
for the winter parade, raising almost 400 lbs. of food over 3 weeks via a food drive for the WOU
