Dan Landry is a US Marine Corps Veteran, having deployed as an Infantryman in the Middle East. Mr. Landry chose to use his Post 9/11 GI Bill Education Benefits in pursuit of a BA in Political Science at UNH because he had always wanted to come to New Hampshire and because he had loved visiting the UNH campus as a kid. Since coming to UNH, Dan has found that his favorite part of UNH is the community and the people: students, faculty, and staff alike. He also found that the most important lesson he learned was to try new things; to avoid limiting himself to his Veteran identity. Based on this lesson, he encourages incoming student Veterans to “Dive into the community and meet people. Everyone here is so much fun, so, take advantage.” Mr. Landry is pleased to note that he has obtained full-time employment with Suffolk Construction Company in Boston, MA.
