The award is for my academic achievements in my current Ph.D. in Education studies. The State University of New York, University at Buffalo, is my chapter. The program is headquartered at Colorado State University. I share this because I am honored by the award, and to bring the program to the attention of other veterans in my network.
From the SALUTE website: "The students who are inducted into SALUTE represent every slice of American military and veterans in higher education, at two and four year institutions. Members include retirees, disabled veterans, active duty military, National Guard and reservists returning to higher education, starting second careers, or helping fund their college careers with military service."
