New at DVNF.org: Guest Blog Series

DVNF is a thought leader in many areas, but we hope to get new perspectives from others who are more intimately involved in specific veterans’ issues,” said DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.). “I firmly believe that knowledge is power.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 05, 2014

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation, a nonprofit veterans service organization that provides critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom, introduced its new guest blogging initiative this week, which will be a useful resource for veterans.

The Guest Blog Series, which began on Wednesday, is intended to gather thought leaders input on many topics that are relevant to veterans. This month, DVNF’s theme for the blog series is a “Back to School” theme for veterans interested in going to college.

The first guest blogger is Madeline Wagner of Northeast Iowa Community College’s Vet2Vet peer mentoring program. In her blog titled, “Enhancing Veteran Engagement at College,” she discusses the challenges that so many veterans face when going to college, and ways to overcome such challenges. In addition, she talks about why engaging veterans in college activities is important to their success as a student.

“DVNF is a thought leader in many areas, but we hope to get new perspectives from others who are more intimately involved in specific veterans’ issues,” said DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.). “I firmly believe that knowledge is power, and we hope this guest blog series is just another way to empower veterans, and arm them with important information to challenge the obstacles they face.”

The organization also announced that its next guest blogger will be a representative from the Student Veterans of America, who will continue the veterans’ education theme for September. The blog is expected to appear on the organization’s website in the third week of September.
