Holly Petraeus to Visit with UW Military Veteran Students Oct. 4
September 28, 2012 — Holly Petraeus, director of the Office of Service Member Affairs, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, will meet with UW veteran students Thursday, Oct. 4.
Petraeus, wife of current CIA Director David Petraeus, will discuss financial issues affecting today’s military families from 4-5 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Family Room. Her visit is sponsored by the UW Veterans Services Center.
“Many of our UW veterans served in the armed forces while Mrs. Petraeus' husband was commanding general of forces in Iraq and Afghanistan,” says Marty Martinez, UW Veterans Services Center project coordinator.
The event is open to all veterans in the community, families and the public, he says.
“I was excited and somewhat surprised to see how many of our young veterans wanted to meet Mrs. Petraeus, not only due to her association to Ret. General David Petraeus, but also for the work she is doing to address the financial issues affecting today's military families,” Martinez says.
