"In the first installment of this two-part series, Nathan Sable argued that the biggest challenge veteran students face is regaining their sense of service and community. From there, he outlined the first two of his five strategies for how higher education institutions can help support this effort; through hiring a knowledgeable veteran coordinator and creating a sense of service. In this article, he explains his remaining three strategies for creating success for veteran students in higher education."
