Our social work students have a unique opportunity to develop an understanding of the complex features of military life and acquire skills that address the needs of service members, citizen soldiers, veterans and their families. FSU is located by Fort Bragg, one of the largest military installations in the world, and has provided educational opportunities to its service members for over three decades.
As students from Cohort 1 class of 2013 of the Army-Fayetteville State University Masters in Social Work Class, we volunteered our time to serve as road guards and motivators for the Center for the Intrepid Mini-Triathlon event held on May 10, 2013. The event was a community based event held at Ft. Sam Houston to challenge functional abilities of Wounded Warriors, and increase motivation of Wounded Warriors and their Families receiving care at the San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC). We helped setup and tear down tables, chairs, and shelter tents for the event. We were able to meet and encourage many of the participants.
