Vets Serving Vets

Student Vets at Culinary School to Treat Wounded Warriors to Special Meal

Norfolk, VA - "Service is what the military is about," says retired U.S. Air Force Major Wade O'Neill and chef instructor at ECPI University's Culinary Institute of Virginia (CIV) in Norfolk. "And it's literally going to be vets serving vets when we welcome wounded warriors from the VA Medical Center in Hampton for a very special meal."

CIV student veterans, staff and members of the general student body will prepare, serve and share fellowship with 30 veterans from the hospital at the school's "Dining for Veterans" day on February 22. O'Neill in January helped establish a Student Veterans of America Chapter at CIV. This will be the inaugural event.

"We have many veterans here at CIV and the military medical community has found that the best group rehabilitation practices are activities of veterans with other veterans," O'Neill says. "They relate more easily with one another and that helps move the healing process forward."

Lunch will begin at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22 at the CIV campus at 2428 Almeda Ave. in Norfolk. The media is invited to attend.
