Veterans Speak Out

News & Events

In one brief tale, a war veteran tells of having come home, going to a movie with a date and having a horrible flashback during the film. He exits the theater, and his date joins him, only to chastise him and call him a wimp.

This is just one story of many shared by a veteran. But for Margaret Bellafiore, an adjunct faculty member in BSU’s art department, it is powerful and revealing. Since 2008, when she discovered there were students on campus who were veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, she has been interested in telling their stories.
