He cares deeply for our nation’s veterans. As a combat veteran, he understands the struggles veterans face returning home and transitioning back into civilian life. He assisted veterans as a student attorney in the Wohl Family Veterans Legal Clinic in Syracuse with their military discharges and benefits claims. He also served as a Student Researcher with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, where he helped draft publications and researched veteran-related data.
