Sitting in a college math class, a former Marine waits patiently to get back his test. The professor addresses the class as the corrected exams are distributed.
“If you didn’t do well on this test, you should just quit now and join the Marines,” the professor says, not realizing this comment is offensive to the student Marine sitting right there in the room.
This is just one of many stories that Zach DuBord, assistant director of student veteran services at Binghamton University, has heard from student veterans. Military veterans face steep challenges when trying to reintegrate themselves in school after service, ranging from lacking the structure of the military to being older than their classmates.
