[Podcast] #77: Randy Dexter – Student Veteran of the Year finalist

Each year Student Veterans of America choose an exceptional student Veteran as Student Veteran of the Year. This year, they narrowed it down to ten finalists, announcing the winner at the end of their national conference.

This week, we are spotlighting 7-8 of this year’s finalists, including the person that was awarded Student Veteran of the Year.

Tuesday, we spoke to two exceptional Veterans, Aaron and Kirsten. Wednesday, we featured Gretchen and Jessica. Yesterday, we chatted with Jessica Kirksey and Luke Opyd.

Today, we speak with Randy Dexter. Randy is an Army Veteran and just received his bachelor’s from University of Nevada in Las Vegas. He just started his pursuit of his master’s degree.

Randy shares stories from his service, recovering from his deployment and struggling transition, how the Las Vegas shooting impacted his community, how he got his service dog, and how his Veterans group is making an impact with local government.
