YSU Veterans and ROTC Alumni Dinner


Happy 4th of July Weekend!! Check out what the Office of Veterans Affairs at YSU has been up to recently!


Saturday, May 15th is Armed Forces Day. Let our uniformed service members know how much we appreciate them!


Many students are curious about the military, but are reluctant to visit recruiters because of the perceived high pressure nature of that business. The Office of Veterans Affairs at YSU would like to eliminate that stress and simply provide an opportunity for students to have their questions answered about what joining the military (Reserves, Guard or Active Duty) really entails. The military has wonderful education benefits to help defray or completely eliminate the cost of your college education. Join Rick Williams, Associate Director of the Office of Veterans Affairs at YSU for a low threat discussion about joining the military. No recruiters will be in this session. Simply have your questions answered about Reserve or Active service in the military and the benefits that follow.
Email Rick Williams, for an invite to this WebEx discussion, Thursday, November 12th, 4-6 pm


Major Rick Williams -

Associate Director of Veterans Affairs

I'm a retired US Army Major with 26 years of service. As the manager of the Carl A Nunziato Veterans Resource Center on campus, and Point of Contact for all military matters, I take great pride in helping current and prior military members, as well as eligible dependents navigate their education benefits and achieve their academic goals. Please feel free to contact me with your questions.

We are open Monday- Friday 8am- 5pm



There are still quite a few seats left, and I am told the deadline to register has been pushed to October 6th which is today! Number is 330.740.2450

It’s always a great meal and its free. Good way to go into Fall Break!

Congressman Tim Ryan did an excellent job on the House Floor this morning advocating for the naming of the new Youngstown VA Outpatient Clinic after local Vietnam Veteran, Carl A. Nunziato.


You can only find these at the YSU Veterans Resource Center...not to mention free sandwich cards! πŸ˜‹πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ


The Office of Veterans Affairs at YSU remembers that fateful day 19 years ago that changed the lives of all Americans especially those who lost loved ones. We will never forget.


The Office of Veterans Affairs joins in this awareness campaign for su***de prevention. The US, on average, loses 17 veterans a day due to su***de. If you are a veteran, and having thoughts of su***de, call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 and press 1.

Hang in there student veterans. There's only a few more weeks left in the semester. COVID-19 has caused unprecedented change that has affected everybody. Veterans, more so than most, should be accustomed to adapting and overcoming. Though the Office of Veterans Affairs at YSU is closed on campus, we're still responding to those who reach out at [email protected].


Happy Birthday to the man whose name graces the Veterans Resource Center at Youngstown State University. Much love, honor and respect for Carl A Nunziato.


We were honored to have Debra Ashenhurst, Retired Army Major General, and current Director of the Ohio Department of Veterans Services make a trip from Columbus to tour the Carl A. Nunziato Veterans Resource Center and spend an hour meeting with some of our student Veterans. Thank you to those students who came out on winter break to meet the Director.
