Storm the Hill 2020

Rodger (South Bend, IN) an honors student studying Political Science, Sociology and Public Affairs at Indiana University South Bend. From 2008-2014 Rodger served as an infantry paratrooper in the United States Army. Rodger serves the veterans community as President of the Student Veterans of America at Indiana University South Bend, acting as an advocate for student veterans and their families. Rodger is Storming the Hill because he is fortunate to serve the veterans community in several capacities. He is a veteran with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan that has personally been touched by each of IAVA’s Big 6. Through his advocacy for student veterans and his work as a veteran service professional assisting veterans and their families navigate a wide range of issues, it is imperative that I recognize the value of VSOs that embrace the diversity and inclusivity of our community. The IAVA’s mission and values ensure that all veteran voices are heard. Follow Rodger on Twitter.
