GCC Veterans Club hosts 2nd vets’ mini-forum Jun 30
The GCC Student Veterans Club, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Benefts Administration, is hosting its second "No Veteran Left Behind" mini-forum on Friday, June 30, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. in the GCC Multi Purpose Auditorium (Bldg. 400).
Veterans, family members, survivors, and community providers are invited to attend this unique, one-to-one experience designed to help veterans and their dependents obtain direct access to the various aspects of Veteran Entitlements and Benefits. Several Benefits Counselors and a Benefits Adviser will be present to assist Veterans and dependents with their questions and/or concerns about VA benefits and the claims process.
No Veteran Left Behind Workshop Topics:
Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment
“Attendance at our first mini-forum was so good that we were encouraged to host a second event to help not only our veteran students, but all veterans on island, to become more aware of all the services available to them,” said Rodney Cruz Jr., outgoing president of the GCC Student Veterans Club.
Veteran students at GCC number nearly 250, representing over 10 percent of GCC’s entire postsecondary student population. The GCC Student Veterans Club, with help from island veterans’ clubs, hosts several events throughout the year for veteran students and their families.
