At Over My Shoulder Foundation, we believe it is our duty to support and mentor the men and women who have come back from overseas serving our country. We need to step up as a nation and mentor those troops in the Army, the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Air Force and the Coast Guard. This Veterans Day, our country celebrates their courage to fight for our nation.
We want to get people thinking about mentoring the troops that have served our country and come back with little or no assistance. We hope you’ll enjoy a past post by 2LT Paul Merklinger’s about the importance of mentoring in his military career.
On Veteran’s Day we will have a special post by Barry Brodsky, the the Director of the Veterans Upward Bound Program at UMass Boston. The Veterans Upward Bound Program at the University of Massachusetts Boston provides a unique opportunity for men and women veterans of all ages to gain access to information about college and career awareness, acquire the academic skills required for entry into higher education and/or to acquire the equivalent of a high school diploma. Services are offered continuously with various workshops, self-paced computer tutorials, individualized tutoring and classroom-based instruction.
Check back with us this Friday to read a great post by Barry Brodsky, and keep your mentors in mind this Veterans Day.
