The VRC staff “helped me go through the lengthy process of the benefits, navigating the websites, and made the transition a lot easier for me.”

 

 – Kevin Oda, Veteran, United States Marine Corps

“The UHMC Veterans Resource Center has become an ideal hub for Veterans who are wanting to attend college and as a support site for Veteran Dependents.”
