WSC Offers Free Event Entry to Disabled Veterans
Nov. 3, 2011 -- Western State College of Colorado (WSC) will grant free entry to disabled veterans for all on-campus events.
“Western is grateful to all veterans for their service to our country,” remarked Deanne Groom, Western’s veterans affairs certification officer. “This is our way of honoring those veterans who have made great sacrifices during their service.”
Veterans who are more than 50 percent disabled are eligible for honorary passes for athletic, cultural and other events at the college.
Permanent and individual event passes are available. Passes can be requested from Groom by contacting her at firstname.lastname@example.org or (970) 943-7007.
For veterans who have not yet obtained a permanent pass, temporary passes will be available at individual events for veterans who state they have a greater than 50 percent disability.
To qualify for an honorary permanent pass, veterans will submit copies of two documents: a copy of their DD-214, which states that the person is a veteran and was honorably discharged; and a copy of their letter from the Veterans Affairs stating the percentage of disability.
“We welcome veteran community members, students, parents and other visitors to our sporting and cultural events at Western. We are honored to offer an opportunity for disabled veterans to join us at events free given their service to our country,” stated WSC President Jay Helman.
