BERKELEY COLLEGE STUDENT FROM ANGELES CITY PARTICIPATES
IN LIBRARY OF CONGRESS VETERANS HISTORY PROJECT

Berkeley College is proud to announce that Charles Stacruz of Angeles City in the Philippines has participated in the Veterans History Project sponsored by the Library of Congress. Mr. Stacruz, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, recently was honored at a gala held by Berkeley College and the Newark Museum to celebrate Veterans of the Armed Forces. He attends Berkeley College in Newark, NJ.

In 2000, the United States Congress established the Veterans History Project in order to collect, preserve and archive personal accounts of American service members so that future generations will be able to hear directly from the veterans and better understand the realities of war. In a video that will be submitted to the Library of Congress, Berkeley College student veterans spoke about personal experiences during their military training and deployment.

“Berkeley College is proud to participate in this project to honor the more than 500 student veterans who are currently enrolled, their families and their loved ones,” said Richard E. Robitaille, EdD, Berkeley College Assistant Vice President, Office of Military and Veterans Affairs. “We thank them for their time, their dedication and their willingness to share their personal history.”

Berkeley College participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program under the G.I. Bill, and collaborates on educational ventures with the National Guard; the Army and Air Force at Fort Dix, NJ; the GoArmyEd distance learning program; and the Navy College Program Distance Learning Partnership. The College also administers the Combat Veterans Educational Partnership (CVET) program.
