These Veterans Chose to Teach
“The discipline, intelligence and courage it takes to succeed in military service make our veterans uniquely prepared to excel in the classroom. I look forward to visiting classrooms in the near future to see these new teachers in action.”
— U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal
