San Diego Miramar College created the Vets-2-Jets program to remove the financial barriers that negatively impact the academic success of disabled Veterans. Through the career placement center, the program is able to assist Veterans, who have a 20% or greater VA disability rating, with text book assistance, laptops for loan, and at times help with utility bills, housing and transportation needs. The funds are also used to sponsor on-campus movie nights and BBQ’s for all Veterans. To date, the Vets-2-Jets program has provided services to over 200 Veterans. “On behalf of the faculty, staff and student Veterans at San Diego Miramar College we wish to thank San Diego Gas & Electric for its generous donation for a fifth consecutive year,” said Dr. Patricia Hsieh, president of San Diego Miramar College. “With our close proximity to Marine Corp Air Station Miramar, we believe it is our duty to assist the proud men and women who have bravely served this country and are now looking to advance their education. Thanks to these funds provided by SDG&E we can sustain our efforts to support Veterans.” San Diego Miramar College served the needs of 2,198 students who declared as active duty military or Veteran during the last reported academic year of 2015-2016.
