Purdue SVO is working on drafting legislation that will excuse Purdue student service members who are actively drilling with a military unit.

We are trying to push the issue and require service members to be fully excused from class while on military orders.

Also during the ceremony, Purdue awarded posthumous bachelor’s and associate degrees to Sean Matti. A double major in organizational leadership and supervision and industrial technology, Matti died July 3, 2011.

It goes without mentioning that our group would not be as successful as we are without the help and support of our members.  It was your hard work, commitment, and overall enthusiasm to be a Purdue Veteran that has gotten us where we are.

Thanks to everyone for an outstanding job!
