Easing Veterans' Transition

Dorothy McNeill, a proud USF parent, knows first-hand how difficult the transition back to civilian life can be for veterans. So when she heard about the programming and services the USF Office of Veterans Success provides to help ease that transition for student veterans, she was eager to pitch in.
 

“I come from a very long line of military, with family members serving in the battles from the Revolutionary War to Iraq. I’ve watched my brother, husband and son transition out of military life so I know how difficult it can be. What I love about USF is that they provide a path for veterans and give them the tools, mentors and assistance they need during this transition period. Anything I can do, however small, to support that effort is meaningful to me.”
