Continuing to expand on West Virginia Green Zone (WVGZ) training, our staff has introduced a video sponsored by Wounded Warrior Project in collaboration with the PsycArmor Institute, titled
We are passionate about educating faculty, staff and students at West Virginia University on how to best work with our veteran population. During the presentation, we like to have open and honest discussions by expanding on the 15 topics discussed in the video. Topics range from the branches of service, jobs in the military, mental health concerns and most importantly how to relate with student veterans. We are hopeful that after the training, staff and faculty will gain insight about military life and the sacrifices military members and their families make.
