"As veterans, we all need to 'endeavor to persevere'. A way to follow this approach is to enroll in an accredited college to obtain education and training in a desired field of study.  Coker College has provided me, and continues to provide me, with an education to graduate in the sociology program. The staff and faculty of the college provide a welcoming and encouraging learning atmosphere."
