http://www.bethanywv.edu/OMJlinks/VeteransPanelWEB.jpgBethany’s Service Learning Center and Homefront COMFORT (Counseling Our Military Families on Retraining and Transition) program hosted a Veterans Panel Discussion on November 9 in honor of Veterans Day. The event was open to the public and drew a standing-room-only crowd.
The following veterans participated on the panel: Aaron Anslow, Bethany visiting assistant professor of art; Ron Shaw, Bethany network administrator; Carrie Kleeh, Wheeling, W.Va., veteran; John Looney, event moderator and Wheeling Vet Center team leader; and Michael Novotney, outreach specialist at the Wheeling Vet Center. Panelists shared their experiences both from their time in service and in returning to life after service and answered questions from the audience.
