No one gets left behind: A message from the OMVS Director during COVID-19冠通棋牌

The military teaches many lessons through training, especially in dealing with crisis situations like we are experiencing today. The most valuable lesson for me now as we adjust to our lifestyles at home, in our community, in our nation is, "No one gets left behind." 

Many veterans come home and experience  isolation; this is not a new battle for us, but many of us adapt, overcome and are resilient by nature. It is hard work. This time is going to require hard work of us all to make sure we leave no behind. We can all learn these skills together. Be fearless—reach out to someone. 

The Office of Military & Veteran Services is  available  to offer  support and services to all of Bellarmine  students, faculty and staff as our community continues to adapt, overcome and show our resilience.
