Tuck veterans engaged this week with the local Upper Valley community.

Military veterans studying at Tuck joined other area veterans in speaking to social studies classes on Thursday at Hanover High School. The visits, now in their sixth year, provide students a chance to interact with those who have served and instill respect for veterans’ experiences.
 
Students and teachers alike had plenty of questions for their guests. Why did you serve? How do you choose which branch of the military? Who decides where you get deployed? Do you ever have flashbacks?

Nicolas Fiore, right, about how to choose a branch of the Military Thursday, November 10, 2016. "I kind of want to give back, in a way," said Norman of her interest in joining the military. Fiore, a student at the Tuck School of Business, was one of several veterans who spoke to classes at the school ahead of the Veterans Day holiday. He discussed issues of women serving in combat, LGBTQ soldiers, and race with the students. "When you're making decisions as a team every day, for years, those differences fade away fast," he said.
