Veterans Symposium at PHSC


PHSC and the Pasco-Hernando Veterans Services Committee will host the third annual Veterans Symposium on Monday, November 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in Wesley Chapel. Representatives from the college and other service organizations will provide information on benefits for vets and their families including re-employment, VA home loans and mortgages, education, insurance and more.

Brian Anderson, a former Green Beret, 10-year Army veteran and director of the Stand Down program will discuss his experience with Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) at the University of South Florida— a quick, effective and safe treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

“ART changed my life,” Anderson said. “This brief therapy took the bad memories that constantly resurfaced and put them in the proper order or long-term storage; it was almost like I was thinking about a time in history.”

The Wiregrass Ranch High School band will provide music and students in the high school’s culinary arts program will prepare and serve refreshments. PHSC Law Enforcement Academy cadets will present colors and the Saint Leo University ROTC will recognize veterans.

The Veterans Symposium welcomes veterans and their families, and is open to the public. Sponsors include the Vet Center, CareerSource Pasco/Hernando, Pasco County Veterans Services, PHSC Student Government Association at Porter Campus and PHSC Veterans Club at West Campus. Call 1-855-NOW-PHSC for more information.
