Summary:
This issue of the Pioneer Post includes an article called "Veterans Organize at IRSC." Vietnam Veterans organized at IRSC to form "Delta Omicron Mu" as a veteran's club. The club gathered to keep veterans informed about developments in the educational-aid benefits being awarded by the government. The club also served as a way for veterans to have their voice to be heard about payments delays from the Veterans Administration. The article is historically significant because it shows how the Vietnam War directly affected people returning from war in our area. It also shows how veterans gathered to voice their concerns about the educational aid being provided by the government and how they became invested in their student government. Summary and historical context created by Justin Marcaida as part of Dr. Michelle Carriagn's Fall 2018 AMH2020.
