Transcript JUST SIGN HERE William Smiley and a VSO staff member go over important paperwork, which is not unusual in the VSO. Photo hy Pin Lim WHICH WAY? The Veterans' Services Office is located in the UC Satellite and is easy to find with a variety of signs showing the way. Photo hy Pin Lim 176 • ORGAnizATions Photo hy Pin Lim UH Veterans Receive a Helping Hand from the \eterans Service Office The UH Veterans' Services Office enters the 2000-2001 academic year with an expanded computer lab, veterans-benefits counseling services and a renewed commitment toward providing outreach, services and resources for veterans pursuing their higher education in to the next century. To aid veterans in their transition from military to student life, UH established a guidance program with R.O. Jonas as chief counselor and Roy A. Crouch as head of the office of psychological services. In December of 1944 the U.S. Veterans Administration selected UH as the site for an official VA Advisement Center, augmenting the guidance program's effectiveness. UH maintains its commitment to veterans today through the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program and the VSO. The ROTC program began in 1948 with 400 cadets affiliated with UH's quartermaster battalion. Today, more than 75 percent of cadets in the program utilize GI Bill benefits and prior-service enlisted personnel is the ROTC's biggest market. "I cannot think of any other institutions that have a big VA hospital and regional office nearby. Everything is in close proximity (in Houston)," ROTC recruiting officer Maj. Kerry A. Reyna said. The office maintains a staff of VA work-study counselors who are intimately familiar with the issues facing student veterans. Student-veterans are generally older students who may have jobs, family responsibilities and yet are also committed to pursuing their higher education. Like our fathers and forefathers, student-veterans have made personal sacrifices in order to preserve the very freedom and opportunities so often taken for granted in American society. In the timeless words of George Washington, "when we assumed the soldier, we did not lay aside the citizen." To this day, UH's student veterans continue in the tradition of the citizen-soldier in their contributions to the University. CAN'T MOVE VSO staff members worked In crowded quarters for a while.
