Fairmont State University’s Veteran Services has received the first ever college placement of a dog from Dogs2DogTags, a nonprofit, that works to place dogs with veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Fairmont State University and the Department of Athletics will be honoring veterans and active military personnel on Thursday evening during Fairmont State's football showdown with nationally ranked Notre Dame College.
As a part of 'Military Appreciation Night,' all active military personnel, veterans and their families will receive free admission to the game.
Each year more than 250,000 service members transition out of the Armed Forces. Statistics show that veterans are 45 percent more likely to be their own boss than their non-veteran counterparts. That is why the U.S. Small Business Administration is dedicated to ensuring veterans have the knowledge and capital they need to become entrepreneurs.
Fairmont State University is among the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. Victory Media has named FSU to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list.
To aid the community in better understanding and caring for veterans, Fairmont State University, Pierpont Community & Technical College and Fairmont General Hospital will host the visit of an internationally recognized educator, author and expert on veterans and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
