Advocating for veterans

Garrett Burgess
Political Science, Class of 2018

Named a 2017 Newman Civic Fellow by the Campus Compact, Garrett plans to work with the Veterans Advocacy Clinic in the College of Law to help veterans who received less-than-honorable discharges due to misconduct arising from mental trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries. These “bad paper” discharges make veterans ineligible for certain VA benefits, as well as make it difficult for them to secure private employment.
