    “Speaking and listening to veterans who attend COD reminds me of how resilient service members can be I feel that if an individual has the drive and motivation to continue learning, then nothing can keep them from pursuing their dreams. Not to say it's easy, but if they keep that goal in mind, they can go anywhere they want to go.”

    The Veterans Services office in particular has provided so much guidance in terms of my military benefits and how to use them. They have been very patient and helpful along the way and answered any questions I’ve had. They also introduced me to new programs and classes that cater to veterans, which was unheard of to me before COD. It’s an amazing opportunity and affordable. If you’re a veteran, you will receive a terrific amount of help and attention in order to complete your goals.
