As the CEO of Student Veterans of America (SVA), connecting with student veterans is my priority. I’ve had the pleasure of engaging with this group of leaders across the country and visited over 240 of our chapters in 48 states over the past two years alone. In my travels, I find it striking that those who know and understand us call us “student veterans.” Those who do not, call us “veteran students.”
