Green Zone Program
Presented by Denny Byrne (staff member & Navy Vet) as well as one of our student veteran volunteers, MVS offers 'Green Zone' presentations to UNH departments, offices, classes, and the community as an introduction to the student veteran population on campus. The sixty minute presentation on Veterans provides information on the Military & Veteran Services office, keys for success on campus, terms commonly used (speak the language), State and UNH demographics, strengths and weaknesses, TBI's & PTSD, unique skills and traits veterans bring to campus, how to communicate with a veterans, and how YOU can help in the success of the student veteran. If time permits, case studies are availabe as well as time for a Q&A.
