The CSCC Student Veterans’ Writing group is open to all CSCC student veterans. The focus of the group is on writing and sharing
nonfiction “true stories” of life in and out of the military. It doesn’t matter whether
or not you consider yourself a “good writer” or a writer at all; what you need is
the desire to share your stories to write them down, and receive support from others
as you do this.
Meetings are held monthly on the CSCC Delaware Campus. Meeting dates and times are dependent on group members’ availability. A meeting agenda will be sent to group members via student email prior to group meetings.
The group co-leaders are Nancy Pine and Beki Test. We teach English classes at CSCC. Please email either of us for more information (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org). We look forward to working with you!

This program allows veterans to obtain a Document Identification Card from our office. This card will display a photograph of the veteran, military service dates, and other pertinent information regarding the veteran's service to our country. This card contains their specific document number, so the discharge record can be rapidly located by his office when needed. The cost to obtain the card is $1.

Burn Pit Registry...
The VA is collecting info on service members who believe they experienced harmful environmental effects to their health from exposure to burn pits in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Currently, the VA says that research does not show evidence of long-term health problems from expo-sure to burn pits, in which a variety of waste from human to chemicals, petroleum and discarded food were burned. But it is also studying the issue and plans to continue doing so. To that end, the agency is seeking information from veterans who believe such exposure has compromised their health.
Veterans can also file a claim for disability compensation for health problems they believe were caused by exposure to burn pits. The claims will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
According to the VA, veterans who were closer to burn pit smoke or exposed for longer
periods may be at greater risk. Health effects depend on a number of other factors,
such as the kind of waste being burned and wind direction. Toxins in burn pit smoke
may affect the skin, eyes, respiratory and cardio-vascular systems, gastrointestinal
tract and internal organs. Most of the irritation is temporary and resolves once the
exposure is gone. This includes eye irritation and burning, coughing and throat irritation,
breathing difficulties, and skin itching and rashes. The high level of fine dust and
pollution common in Iraq and Afghanistan may pose a greater danger for respiratory
illnesses than exposure to burn pits, the VA said.
