My service in the US Navy is one of my highest accomplishments. The military lifestyle and structure instilled in me the value of discipline, professionalism, and teamwork.

My research interest is the military veteran returning home and enrolling in the community colleges of California to re-orient him/herself to society and re-structure a new way to be of service to society. Are the community colleges ready for the huge numbers of veterans who have started and will continue to descend on the front doors of the community colleges? Will the relevance of programs, availability of courses, styles of counseling and possibilities for transferring to universities--will these be in place when the military veterans arrive knocking at our doors in huge numbers?
