Vets Helping Vets

(NAPSI)-There is hopeful news for veterans who are pursuing an education.

They may well find someone like Dan Standage, a student at the University of Arizona and a Marine Corps veteran. He offers his fellow students a receptive ear and assistance from someone who understands the challenges they face.

As a member of the Blinded Veterans Association-also known as BVA-and a Vice President of its Southern Arizona Regional Group, he's taking to heart the organization's mission of helping other veterans.

Standage helps student veterans through his volunteer work in the Veterans Education and Transition Services Office on the university campus. He attributes his willingness and initiative to serve others to his own successful rehabilitation and the inspiration provided by other members of BVA.

Said Standage, who encourages others to go to residential blind rehab, "The area I focus on is reducing the stress of coming to college. Removing barriers reduces anxiety."
