The Nevada Military Support Alliance Veterans and Military Center is officially opened for business! Today many veterans enjoyed some food, snacks and drinks while they took a stroll through the area. The University of Nevada – Reno recently opened up The Pennington Student Achievement Center for students and student services all over campus. The building will house all these services, while offering many other functionalities as described by the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Make sure to look at some of the picture below, and tell us what you think of the new center either in the comments bellow or Facebook or Twitter.
We were able to sell all 500 tickets for the raffle. We’d like to thank everyone who supported us, the community, and Sportsmans Warehouse for housing us. The money from this raffle will help several of student veterans go to a conference in Florida that is meant to help them further their own leadership skills as well as take what they learn back to the student veterans in our very own community.
The winners are:
- Chris Chantis
- Shannon Alton
Again, thank you all so much.
Another Engage event is coming up November 13th. For those of you who are don’t know, engage is an event that is put on by local veterans from the Nevada Alumni Association Veterans Chapter. Engage starts with some good breakfast followed by a special key note speaker. This month’s key note speaker is Steve Hill from Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development. In between eating and the key note speaker veterans are encouraged to meet others and expand their network to enhance their opportunities in the job market.

There is one thing that holds true for every Veteran, regardless of what branch they served in. That is, we all love free food!!!

Save the date, Sep. 4th between 1100 – 1300! Check out the flyer here for all the details! BBQ invitation flyer
Thanks to the Disabled American Veterans here in Reno for a wonderful afternoon, as well as a very generous gift.
Today, in front of the Sportsman’s Warehouse, veterans organizations gathered, as well as our community. The biggest little city came close together, purchasing raffle tickets for food and prizes. The tickets that were purchased helped to support future projects, and past support helped to make this day special.
Our project, an education, is one of the most vital parts to a veterans rehabilitation back into the world. Regardless of the GI Bill, money can still become a burden on a student veteran’s pocket. This is why the $3,000 given to us by the DAV is appreciated, and we at the University of Nevada-Reno’s, Wolfpack Veterans Club thank you!
We have food, games and tons of Veteran organizations here at Sportmans Warehouse. Raffles with great prizes and relics from the military.
Come down and eat some good food while supporting student veterans, and other veteran organizations.
This year, the wolfpack veterans club is going to be more busy than ever. We have a couple of raffles, several events, and a great opportunity to give back! Not to mention, we’re better in touch with veteran organizations around town than ever before! With this in mind, it’s important to keep in touch. No matter if its just to see some live music, get some volunteer hours before you graduate, or become a member of this great membership.
Durring the first few weeks WPV club will be active in order to boost membership. If you’d like to talk to us in person, make sure to look for us around campus.
We have a couple of raffles planned for this semester. These raffles will give funds for future scholarships as will as give a chance for all of you and your family to get awesome prizes. We have everything from weapons to a X-Box One!
We also have a great volunteer chance, help us clean up Stead! This is a great chance for anyone to get volunteer hours that they may need as well as boost their own portfolio. Details can be found at Veteran Community Initiative
If you enjoy good, music, and a good time then come down to the Nugget Friday, Aug. 14th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event, hosted by Concerned Veterans of America can be found here.
We hope everyone has enjoyed their Summer. The club will be getting together soon so we can start planning events for the Fall semester! Can’t wait to see you all.
The VetCenter is holding a rock climbing event at Rock Sports Indoor Climbing! The event is for veterans and dependents. Limited space is available so contact them with the information in the flyer if you want to go!
