From one veteran to another, service is an important word that means honor, sacrifice and dedication. At Oregon Tech, the Student Veteran Program (SVP) continues to act on this by providing aid to veterans in Klamath County through their program called “Vets Helping Vets.”
Oregon Tech students who are part of the SVP perform community service projects helping elderly and disabled veterans, and enriching the areas around them. From cleaning up the exterior and performing landscaping at the Veterans Enrichment Center in Klamath Falls to performing manual labor at homes around town, SVP is committed to helping the veteran community.
The members of the SVP are dedicated to satisfying the needs of any veteran, Active Duty, reservist, and dependents of the Oregon Tech and Klamath Community College community during and after their own time as a student, staff or faculty. With the direction of the elected officers of SVP and support from the Veterans Action Committee (VAC) comprised of faculty and staff, the SVP reach out to the greater Oregon Tech and Klamath community to build friendships and partnerships based on the same honor, duty, loyalty, and selfless service instilled in all veterans.
