SALUTE to one of our FBBP Veteran
SALUTE to William Rosado, Army Veteran, nominated for Student Employee of the Year 2012-2013
SALUTES go out to the Veteran and Enlisted Student Association (VESA) members of Purdue University Calumet. They have been busy this semester working with the From Boots to Books Program, as volunteers who assisted over 300 veterans looking for employment, VA information, local government agencies and charitable organization assistance; just to name a few. They have been busy this Christmas by working with the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program purchasing gifts for children from the ages of 5-to- 12 years of age. 10 children received gifts and winter clothing sponsored by VESA. VESA also assisted in the distribution of the toys for the area on December 19, 2012. Even though they worked with the Salvation Army, VESA chose their own “Angels” from the campus to assist in making the holidays happy. Children of some parents that attend Purdue Calumet were also given presents this holiday.
Because of the work these students have and are currently doing, we ask that everyone take a minute and salute these men and women who truly believe that No veteran or enlisted person should ever be left behind!
