I don't know that a more significant role was played in my mental health than Brandman*. With recent studies and reports of veteran suicide rates on the rise, giving us relationships with others with similar backgrounds and giving us a purpose and belonging will go a long way in reducing this number.

I’m over the moon that their staff made it so easy, and I learned so much that I could apply to my work right now. I improved myself in leadership competencies and it’s made me a much better leader for the Department of the Navy.

As a veteran, I definitely encourage other veterans to seek out what services the school offers. And even if you don't think you can qualify for the advantage, at least ask. It's not accepting a handout. It's encouraging other members in the military to take part in the program.
