In honor of Veterans Day 2018, we are sharing the stories of three veterans and service members who are a part of the UB School of Nursing family. The stories feature an alumna, faculty member and current student. Each story is unique, and each contribution is valuable. Thank you to these and other veterans across the country for your service and sacrifice. We are truly grateful.
