Shinseki + Wyden

Senator Ron Wyden hosted Eric Shinseki, US Secretary of Veterans Administration, for a veterans round table at Portland State University on Wednesday August 19, 2009.  After President Wim Wiewel welcomed the Senator, Secretary, and Governor Ted Kulongoski to campus the round table proceeded.  Included in the event was ASPSU Student Body President Jonathan Sanford and other student veterans.  The round table was centered around the new G.I. Bill, which the Senator was a big champion of in Congress.  PSU will be seeing many more veterans taking advantage of this program and we are prepared for the incoming veterans.  It was an honor to host the Secretary and Senator and we look forward to working with them in the future on veterans issues.
