Open House for UT Military Service Center to conclude Joining Forces week

The University of Toledo will conclude its recognition of the national Joining Forces week with an open house Friday to invite members of the community to learn about the UT Military Service Center.

The Military Service Center, located in Rocket Hall Room 1529, is the main point of contact for students, staff and faculty veterans or those who are still serving. The open house will be 1-2:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16.

Members of the Toledo community are invited to stop by to meet the staff, including VA certifying official Cheryl Karnikowski; representatives from the Toledo VET Center, one of eight centers in Ohio that provides a broad range of counseling, outreach and referral services to eligible veterans in order to help them make a satisfying post-war readjustment to civilian life; and Brittany Powers, a social worker from the Department of Veterans Affairs, who regularly meets with student veterans to talk about resources, including VA health care and the new Toledo Community Based Outpatient Clinic located on the Health Science Campus.

The UT Military Service Center assists with admission applications, GI Bill processing, military transcripts, registering for financial aid, career assistance and more.

The open house is the final event this week in recognition of the national Joining Forces week to highlight the research and services available on campus to those who have served our nation.

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden have helped organize Joining Forces week nationally, honoring veterans for their service and working to ensure those returning from the battlefield have the economic and health care they deserve.
