The New York Film Academy College of Visual & Performing Arts Veterans Office welcomed Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army (Retired) Corey Morris, a representative from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Healthcare system to speak with NYFA veteran students. Mr. Morris spoke to students about the various benefits that are offered through the VA including healthcare and education benefits.
Many of the student veterans recently transitioned from the military to the educational opportunities at NYFA and were unaware of what benefits are available to them. On the spot, Mr. Morris assisted veteran students in enrolling into the VA Healthcare system at the campus.
Retired Army veteran and Filmmaking student, Gail Amend said, “I thought that Mr. Morris had great information to share. I was unaware of all the services that the VA provides. We as veterans appreciate the NYFA Veterans Office in bringing these type of representatives to the campus.”
The New York Film Academy Veterans staff looks forward to developing the partnership with Mr. Morris and the VA in support of this newest generation of veterans.
