In Year Five, University Veteran Services Expands Efforts to Create Community Among Military-Connected BadgersNovember 1, 2019 | :

Mirana Whaley swears she can pick out fellow military veterans on campus simply by the way they walk.
“It’s more purposeful,” says Whaley, a UW–Madison freshman. “We’ve got places to go and stuff to do. We don’t walk slowly.”
Whaley attributes her quickened pace to the rigid structure of active duty. She spent the past four years in the U.S. Navy, mostly stationed in Norfolk, Virginia. Now, as she adapts to college life, she’s not always sure where she fits in among undergraduates.
