I was motivated by the opportunity to connect with other veterans and employ the humanities as a means to understand my/our military experiences…I benefited from the course in a number of ways. It helped me gain a better understanding of my military service and enabled me to view that service from a perspective that stretches back millennia yet has commonality with the difficulties veterans continue to experience today. It provided support for my mental health during a difficult time and offered the opportunity to build new relationships with other veterans. It brought out creativity that has been dormant in me for many, many years. It educated me and serves as encouragement for me to pursue further education in the humanities.” “The program is educational and inspirational. It improved my mental health and revived my creativity. It has been incredibly beneficial for me to be part of this program.
