Special place for special forces

By David Schick


Some soldiers may no longer be wearing the uniform, but they are still serving their country and those who served.

Since the inception of the GPC club known as Veterans Community Awareness and Support Group (VETCOM) in April 2011, the group has been involved in several service-learning or civic engagement projects.

“We hope to include not only student veterans and their family members as VETCOM members, but also representatives from the administration, staff, and faculty of the GPC community,” said Jerry Tiarsmith, faculty advisor to VETCOM.

With the return of so many U.S. soldiers from Iraq and GPC’s Military Outreach Program the number of veteran students is likely to increase according to Dr. Anthony S. Tricoli, president of GPC.
