KALAMAZOO, Mich. — For military veterans returning home, going back to school can create new challenges.
“A lot of us have had experiences that most people don’t understand,” said Shelby Powers, a long-serving veteran of the armed forces and student at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. “For people who have injuries, or PTSD, there are lot of different things that we brought home with us. And even being in the classroom sometimes can be difficult.”
