New Mural in St. Louis Helps Veterans Transition from Combat to College

As veterans get the opportunity to experience the beauty of the world they’ve helped protect, a new mural at the University of Missouri-St. Louis serves as a reminder that the campus is equally as committed to them. The school's Veterans Center is an example of how colleges value and honor service members by guiding them through their integration into civilian life, which can sometimes prove challenging.

When the head of the school’s department of military and veterans studies received the green light to host a competition for the mural, Navy veteran Michael Wattle showcased his artistry by producing a work that truly depicts his understanding and passion for the subject. The colossal three-piece mural depicted in this video is an inspiring welcoming beacon for student veterans.
