This edition: From Combat to Campus: Veterans at CUNY

Episode Details

Original tape date: April 15, 2014.

First aired: April 27, 2014.

On this month’s show, we look at veterans and veteran’s services across the CUNY spectrum. The Office of Veterans Affairs offers many things to CUNY vets, and we look at the center as well as four veterans who have benefited from CUNY veterans services. Brooklyn College’s Philip F. Napoli wrote an oral history on the Vietnam War that disputes the stereotype of Vietnam war vets as debilitated, and we chat with him and two of the vets from the book, one of whom is a BC graduate as well. Jane Katz, a 50-year teaching ‘vet’ of CUNY and former US Olympian, talks about her new swim therapy program for vets, W.E.T.S. for Vets. Barry Mitchell visits with ex-Marine and now high school math teacher, Ana Mojocoa of Queens College. And we revisit the story of Garen and Anna Marshall – Garen defused bombs in the Iraq War and went on to graduate from Baruch College.
