SHINING THEIR LIGHT
Special Ops: Service Members, Veterans, and their Families (SMVF) 2021
I can wholeheartedly say that Assumption’s the most Veteran friendly institution I’ve ever attended.
This program has taught me about SMVF culture and the unique obstacles that they face. What I have learned has helped me to become more adept at understanding Veterans, and has given me the necessary skills to diagnose, treat, and interact with this population.
