During our regular meeting time on Monday, January 26th, 6:00-7:00 PM in Bunche 2160 we will be holding a Q&A panel event with three Bruin veterans: Richard Flores (US navy), Samuel Sutton (US navy), and Ryan Kim (Korean military). They will be discussing the following topics:
- What factors influenced them to join the military (economic, social, etc.)
- How they viewed military culture and the attitude/mentality it cultivated
- Their perspective on the prevalence of mental health issues (depression, suicide, etc.) in the military
- Stories from the military, including their best and worst memories
- The challenges of maintaining relationships with friends and family while away
- Their personal experiences reintegrating into civilian life
- How they are currently affected by their status as a veteran
This is an insightful opportunity to hear our fellow students speak candidly about their experiences as veterans, and also to have your personal questions answered. See you there!
