    IUP Veterans Organization

    The IUP Veterans Organization is a recently-formed student organization. Its unofficial motto is “Veterans Helping Veterans.” The club connects veterans with their peers and provides school information. As a group, they don’t care about branch of service, rank, or politics. They have met regularly and had speakers from the VFW and VA. They are planning more speakers and a resume workshop to help veterans translate their military experience, skills, and knowledge into “civilian” terms and language.
