Today we honor veterans. Serving in the military is one part of that identity, returning to civilian life is another -- one that many grapple with. Dario DiBattista, director at the Military and Veterans Center at Towson University, describes how the space provides community and support for student veterans. And Rachel Duff, a participant at MVC, urges people to see herself and her fellow vets more clearly: “We all come from different backgrounds, and our service does not define us. We have concerns we have hopes, we have fears, we have values and priorities just like everybody else in our nation” Plus, we meet Dominus Blue, a former intelligence officer turned sustainable agriculture farmer, and Laverne Harmon, program manager for vocational rehabilitation services at the Veterans Administration Maryland HealthCare System, talking about the VA Farm Training Program.
