Our Trocaire College veteran services office would like to send a warm welcome to all of our veteran and dependent students. My experience with this position extends to the both the military and civilian arena. I grew up in the southtowns of Buffalo and graduated from Frontier Central High school in 1999. After two semesters in a Syracuse NY community college I joined the active duty component of U.S. Air Force in late 2000 and was stationed at Robins AFB Georgia. Following September 11, 2001 my unit was dispatched to the middle eastern theater, and I completed four deployments before separating from active duty in late 2004. I then began a full time college career at the University at Buffalo while simultaneously joining the Air Force Reserves in Niagara Falls as an aircraft C-130 loadmaster. I graduated UB in the Spring 2008 and began working at the Department of Veteran Affairs in downtown Buffalo processing educational benefits for the entire northeast. I spent most of the 2009-2010 year being activated with the 914th Air Wing (Niagara Falls) spending time in Europe, Africa, and Central America. I finally decided to leave the VA and begin my career in the private sector, starting at Trocaire College as their veterans representative in June 2011. I very much look forward to serving our military families as they begin their college careers, graduate, then find their place in the world. I wish everyone at Trocaire the best of luck as each of you begin a new chapter in your lives.
