Last year, Veteran Services and EIU students built over 300 care packages and sent them to the U.S. Forces in Afghanistan. Pictured above is the Tactical Operations Center of a combined U.S. and Polish Forward Operating Base, saying “thanks” to EIU for the packages. We support our troops!

The week prior to Veteran’s Day 2012, Eastern hosted many events to celebrate veterans and their families. At the event pictured above, a panel of three student veterans came and told both a story of their time in the service, as well as a story about their transition to Eastern Illinois University. Brandi, Chris, and Rebecca provided EIU students a glimpse of military service.
