All next week the Sierra College Veteran Success Center will host a Veteran’s Appreciation Week to thank our Veterans, Active-Duty, Reservists, and National Guard members for their SERVICE and commitment by providing Zoom sessions that are relevant and useful!
There are a wide range of sessions being provided throughout the week to offer information on service and therapy dogs, meditation, Federal and State programs and services, opportunities for service in the community, using VA service connection rating for classroom enhancements, comradery, and personal experience of transition from the military to civilian life.
