On March 5, as part of the Memories of Service/Visions for the Future:CU’s Student Veterans as Key Figures in Sustaining the Mission of Higher Education series Limerick interviewed CU student veterans Zach Guiliano & Bob Draughon.
Zach, a former Army Sergeant is majoring in International Affairs and minoring in Political Science, and also pursuing a certificate in Western American Studies from the Center of the American West. Bob, former Army indirect fire infantryman (also known as a mortarman) is double majoring in History and Economics.
Topics ranged from the experiences and convictions that led them to volunteer for military service, to the ways that their thinking about the nation changed and deepened over their time of service. With a Western American historian serving as host, there was an occasional comparison to the history of the military in the American West, but the focus was on the stories and reflections of young people who are unmistakably wise beyond their years—and also students with intense curiosity and compelling ambitions for the future.
