In Their Words:

Jonathan Rooney, LLC RA (2015-16)
“Each member has a shared experience of having served in the military. The LLC becomes a safe haven to become connected with one another and engage in various campus activities and events.”

Mike Kirchner, LLC Contact
“I have enjoyed meeting and connecting with the members of the LLC. Historically, these students may have been overlooked so finding additional ways to connect with student veterans at UWM has been very rewarding.”
