Student Veteran Support Services


UW Casper is committed to supporting and serving our student veterans. Over 10% of our total student population are veterans, many of which are service-connected and combat veterans. Our mission is providing support to our student veterans in the ways of scholarships, support funds, tutoring support, recreational therapy, suicide awareness, community support, and other services.

Senior Veteran Spotlight

    Zachary Brown

    United States Airforce

    I am an active-duty Senior Airman at the Air Force Academy Fire Department. I am studying Organizational Leadership and plan to graduate this Spring. I’ve served in the Air Force for almost 3 years now and hope to either pursue a civilian career in fire or commission as an Officer in the Air Force next year. I have 3 young children, Oliver, Adalynn, and Elaine who keep me busy! In my free time I enjoy fly fishing and elk hunting. I hope to use my degree to become a more impactful leader to my troops and within the Air Force.

    Devin A. Jaques

    United States Army

    I served in the Army for 5.5 years as an Engineer Equipment repairer. I was stationed in Fort Riley KS, and Fort Carson Co, and did one tour in Iraq. I learned a lot about myself, and even more about the world around me. This opportunity gave me many unique experiences that I will stick with me forever, from the people I was lucky enough to meet, and all the incredible places I got to see. The greatest lessons I learned were to cherish the moment in the present even when the circumstances are less than ideal, to remember that everyone's battle is different, kindness and compassion go a long way, and call your mom!

    Dustin Smart

    United States Army

    I enlisted in the US Army in 1989 after graduating from Natrona County High School. I was assigned as an Infantryman to the 101st Airborne Division at Ft Campbell KY. I deployed with that unit to Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm in 1990. I served my 3-year enlistment then pursued a different path working in the construction and remodel industry. I started my college path in 2018 at Casper College, earning a AS in Psychology before transfering to UW Casper. I am so grateful for the friendly faculty at UW-Casper and for the VR&E program through the VA which has given me the opportunity to pursue my Master’s of Social Work with which I hope to work in the VA to help other veterans access their benefits and better their life as they adjust to life after military service.
