"From Combat to Campus"


Student veterans tell their stories of war and the reintegration process in the September-October issue of Minnesota Magazine, the University of Minnesota alumni magazine. These veterans have shared their experiences as part of the Warrior to Citizen Campaign oral history project.

One unique aspect of the oral history project, coordinator Kristin Farrell says, is that it seeks to capture veterans’ reintegration experience as well as their service.

The Warrior to Citizen Campaign is a non-partisan collaborative of individuals and organizations in Minnesota engaging at the community level to ease reintegration of returning veterans into civilian society and to enlist their skills and experience in strengthening community life.
