“Roosevelt is a great place for veterans to see that there are more ways to give back to your country besides going overseas, and they’re right here in the city of Chicago. It’s also a great way for people who’ve never been in the military to see that veterans are just as caring and motivated as anyone else.” Horacio Aguilera U.S. Army veteran and political science major
